We are looking forward to meeting you all at FSY this year, getting to know you, to feel each other’s spirit and to learn from one another. FSY will be a week of fun where you will make new friends and get spiritual experiences. You will have the opportunity to grow as a person and learn about how we can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13), which is the theme for this year’s FSY. Prepare yourself and look forward to a wonderful week. Please come and join us.

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).

The participant fee for FSY is .
This covers food, accommodation and all conference materials (manual, music CD, T-shirt, ...).

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

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 2023 and 31 December 2023, 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 website. 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.
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.
