Youth under 8 years of old must arrive and remain with chaperone throughout the day. Youth 8+ who are not attending with a chaperone will be introduced to a volunteer chaperone at the beginning of the day who they can reach out to if they need anything during the course of the event.  They will eat in a designated area with AYCO volunteer chaperones, and will be required to check out with their volunteer chaperone when they leave the space for the day.

The $25 chaperon admission includes access to the space, coffee, lunch, dinner, and a showcase ticket. For safety’s sake, we ask chaperons to stay in the small lounge area during workshops.
