Youth from these stakes are given priority for registration. If their registration is received by Insert date, they are guaranteed a place at FSY. Registrations after Insert date can only be accepted if there are still vacancies.


Youth from other stakes/districts not mentioned above may register and are placed on a waiting list. Should there still be still vacancies after Insert date, registrations will be accepted on a first come first served basis (signed incoming mail).


Their journey to FSY and back home will not be organised by FSY or any stake/district. Neither will the cost be subsidised but must be paid in full by the participant.


DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBERS EXPECTED AT FSY 2022 WITHIN EUROPE, SOME OR ALL SESSIONS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE YOUTH FROM OUTSIDE THE INVITED STAKES

Costs and payment

Costs


The participant fee for FSY is £75.00.

This covers food, accommodation and all conference materials (manual, music CD, T-shirt, ...).

According to the number of active youth in a stake, the Area Office retains a portion of the allocated LUBA amount each quarter to help fund FSY conferences.

Youth or their families respectively will only have to pay £75.00.

This also applies to the youth who are not members of the Church, but attend on the invitation of their friends from invited stakes/districts. Those youth are also included in the bus transport.
Youth from other stakes/districts have to organise and pay for their own journeys.

FSY is for all youth in the eligible age group.

We recognise that individual family circumstances will vary and we do not want FSY attendance to present a financial burden to any family or individual regardless of the number of children they have wishing to attend.

Families and individuals should work together with their Bishop to find a solution allowing all youth to attend.

If you need any further help or advice, please contact your FSY Administrators.

£75.00 for each participant of the invited stakes/districts should be paid into the ward/branch bank account BEFORE THE BISHOP/BRANCH PRESIDENT SIGNS THE REGISTRATION FORM.

Participants, including non-member youth from outside invited stakes, will pay the full amount of £360.00. The session administrators will contact you about how to do this.


Cancellations

If a participant cancels their registration by Sunday 4 July 2021, no cancellation fee will be required.

For cancellations after Sunday 4 July 2021 the full fee is payable
( £75.00 for participants from invited stakes, £360.00 for other participants).

Other Information

Transportation must be arranged for the youth to arrive between 11:00am and 13:00pm on the first day of the conference ( Wednesday 1 December 2021 ). The specially invited stakes/districts will take care of that and plan accordingly. Youth should not arrive before 11:00am.

If parents take their children to FSY, they should leave the site after saying good-bye to their children at check in.

If participants travel by train, they can be picked up from the station on Wednesday 1 December 2021 and taken back there on Sunday 5 December 2021.

For this shuttle service we need to know the names of the travellers, their exact arrival time at the station (between 11.30 - 12.30 hrs) and their mobile number through e-mail to { administrators_email } by Insert Date.

Please plan your return journey for us to take you to the station between 09.30 - 10.30 hrs.

The return journey on Saturday should start between 09.00 and 11.00am. The specially invited stakes/districts will organise transportation by bus accordingly.

All youth must have left by 11.00 am.

Please bring the following things to FSY:


Insert packing list here


A key part of FSY is scripture study. Use of mobile phones during any FSY activity is usually not permitted and previously all youth were asked to use paper scriptures.

Youth are permitted mobiles to study scriptures in any FSY activity requiring scripture study. They are to be asked to only use their mobiles for scripture study in that activity. This would be in place of paper scriptures. They are to be asked that if they feel they will be tempted to use them for something else in the activity they should use paper scriptures.


If a young person is found using their mobile for something else, they will be asked to put their phone away and use paper scriptures.


All young people should still bring paper scriptures to FSY.


Youth who wish to use paper scriptures should not feel any pressure to use their mobiles.


We hope that all youth who wish to use their mobiles for scripture study will be able to do this and use their mobiles appropriately.


Any inappropriate use of a mobile phone or MP3-player during an FSY activity is prohibited. If you feel you cannot deal with this on your own, we advise you to leave them at home. Moreover, portable stereo devices, DVD/CD-players, gaming devices or similar things, bicycles, in-liners or skateboards are not allowed.


Each participant will be allocated to a group of 10-12 youth their own age:


14-15-year-olds (age on first day of conference)


• 16-18-year-olds (age on first day of conference)


Groups at FSY consist of one age group only. The allocation is automatic according to your birth date.


If you turn 16 between 1 May 2022 and 31 December 2022, you may choose for yourself which age group you prefer. Please contact your administrators when you submit your application if you have a preference.


If you want to be in the same group with a friend, you may name one person with your registration on the internet. That person needs to be


the same gender


• the same age


• you must mutually mention each other with your registration.


Therefore, please co-ordinate this before you register.


This arrangement is non-committal as the groups will be combined from all participating stakes/districts. However, we will try to do our best to accommodate your wishes.


Please consider the allocation of groups and rooms as an opportunity to meet new people. Such friendships may become a lifelong enrichment.


Information on group and room allocation will be given at check-in only.


Activities


Each FSY participant is expected to participate in every activity.


Leaving the Venue


For safety reasons participants are not allowed to leave the premises during the FSY week. If parents want to pick up their children before the end of the week, they must make a prior arrangement with the FSY administrators.
