There are 2 programs for the teen/young group at the convention this year. $160 by April 1 (see pricing here
(all days – includes excursions & some lunches)

The teen program is for teens with Williams syndrome, ages 13 - 17 and their siblings (siblings 16 & older can attend as "mentors/junior counselors" for the younger teens with WS). 

The young adult program is for attendees with Williams syndrome, ages 18-20.

Each program is designed to provide a mix of on-site activities and education with off-site excursions to local attractions.   The groups will do some, but not all, activities together.  Each will have separate leadership and volunteers.

Classes on healthy relationships and internet safety will be included. Excursions will be to local venues including Dave & Busters, 
Knotts Berry Farm, Aquarium of the Pacific & the Queen Mary.

Additional information:

• Lunch is provided if teens are off-site during the lunch break
• Volunteer oversight is provided at a ratio of 4:1
