Housing at YOUTH 2023 will be at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort, with the Daytona Plaza serving as a backup if the Hilton is filled. There are ocean-facing rooms, cabanas, suites, as well as bay-facing rooms. Most rooms are equipped with two queen beds and allow up to four people. Rooms also have mini-fridges, coffee makers, and several other amenities. The event room rate of $145/night can be extended up to three days before or after YOUTH 2023. Please note that a small deposit is due at the time of booking.

When leaders go through the registration process, leaders are responsible to reserve rooms 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. There is an additional fee that will be charged during registration for groups who elect to stay outside of the hotel. For the best and simplest possible experience at YOUTH 2023, we highly recommend staying in the Hilton Oceanfront Resort.
