UPDATED MARCH 30, 2023:
We appreciate the enthusiasm for our upcoming YOUTH 2023 event in Daytona Beach! Because of the incredible response and youth leaders planning way, way ahead, all rooms at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort are now sold out. If you already have confirmed room reservations at the Hilton, there are no changes to your reservations. (Note: If you are one of those early-bird-gets-the-worm youth leaders with rooms at the Hilton, and you happened to have reserved more than you needed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
The Plaza hotel was our overflow hotel, but they experienced storm damage over the winter and are closed for renovations. But not to worry! Our new overflow hotel is the Best Western Plus Daytona Inn Seabreeze Oceanfront, which is within walking distance (on the beach even!) of both the Hilton and the Ocean Center where all YOUTH 2023 events will take place. These rooms are equipped with two queen beds or one king bed and a sleeper sofa, which will allow up to four people per room. Rooms also have mini-fridges, coffee makers, and several other amenities. Please note that a small deposit is due at the time of booking. The room block is listed under Discipleship Ministries YOUTH. The room rates are $189/night for July 25, 26, 27. If you want to arrive early, room rates are $179 for July 23 and 24. There are no rooms available at our event rate after the night of July 27.
As leaders go through the registration process, leaders are responsible to reserve rooms directly with the Best Western Plus Daytona Inn Seabreeze Oceanfront on behalf of their group. Leaders also create their own rooming assignments, following their church’s Safe Sanctuaries® policy (or equivalent abuse prevention policy) in organizing their participants for sleeping arrangements.
