BBYO has the right to institute a COVID-19 fee of approximately $80–100 per participant, per program, to cover expenses such as food service, cleaning, facility upgrades, and any additional medical supplies and personnel needed.
Program prices are subject to some change and are not guaranteed until you complete your registration with a refundable deposit. Families are responsible for paying the balance in full minus any scholarship awards they are expecting to maintain a current account balance. This includes families traveling to Israel with a $3,000 RootOne Voucher. If your family overpays for their teen’s experience—which results in an account overage—BBYO will refund your family (or funder) for your account overage by sending a check in September after account reconciliations have been completed.
METHOD OF PAYMENT
Payment is accepted by e-check/ACH, check, or credit card. Should you wish to pay by credit card, a non-refundable convenience fee of 3% will be assessed for all payments apart from the initial $250 deposit. Canadian residents do not have the ability to pay by ACH in our system. All posted prices are in US Dollars.
For e-check/ACH payments, the limit per transaction is $11,000. If you need to pay more than this amount, please make separate payments to avoid your transaction being declined.
STEPS TO SUBMIT OUTSIDE FUNDING
Email a copy of your teen’s award letter—which should include your teen’s full name, the program they are registered for, the amount of the award, and contact information from the funding organization—to [email protected].
Checks must be made payable to BBYO, include the teen’s full name, and say the program they are registered for in the memo line. Mail and address checks to:
