Frequently Asked Questions
Do my parents have to be with me at check-in and check-out?
It is not necessary for a parent / guardian to be with you at check-in. They may drop you off at the drop off location, and YLC mentors will escort you to the check-in desk.
However, a parent / guardian must be present at check-out. If someone other than your parent / guardian is picking you up from Conference, please let our check-in staff know the designated check-out person’s name. If you are driving yourself to Conference, you do not need a parent / guardian present at check-out.
Can my friends come visit me at YLC?
Only registered students will be allowed at Conference. We do not allow outside guests as they can be a distraction to our conference program and the student groups.
Can I leave the Conference for just a few minutes?
Students are not allowed to leave the designated areas on campus during Conference. Due to safety reasons, students who leave the designated areas will be immediately dismissed from Conference.
What if I cannot make it to the check-in time or need to leave Conference early?
Late arrivals after 2:00 PM are not permitted as they are disruptive to the other students at Conference. We will not be allowing students to arrive late or leave conference early, so that students can experience the program in its entirety and also to prevent disrupting the student group dynamic. No refunds will be given for any registration withdrawals within 14 days prior to Conference. Please contact email@example.com if you have further questions.
