Youth Day registration and apparel

Register for Youth Day by January 26 to avoid the price increase. Youth Day fees increase to $35 per participant after this day. If mailing in your registration, make sure to include a second and third choice in the event that your first workshop selection is full. The benefit of registering online is that you can see workshop availability in real time. Register today at archive.recongress.org.


Youth Day apparel is now available online at www.seraph7.com. Official Youth Day T-shirts and Sweatshirts are available for advance purchase and customization. All advance and custom orders must be placed by February 23. Apparel will be sold at Youth Day, but prices increase.

Special Hotel rates for attendees

We have contracted special rates for RECongress attendees at some of the nearby hotels to the Anaheim Convention Center. To get the quoted rates, be sure to inform the hotel that you are attending the 2018 Religious Education Congress and ask for the REC or Religious Education Congress Block Group Rate. Tip: Several of the hotels offer suites that can accommodate up to 6 people. Some have free breakfast options, increasing their value.

Where are my tickets?

For those who have already registered. We will begin mailing Youth Day and Congress tickets this week. We utilize an outside company to print our Congress tickets in batches, so not everyone will get their tickets at the same time. Even a husband and wife that registered together may not get their tickets at the same time. Please be patient. If you registered online, you can return to your registration and it will inform you when your tickets are printed and mailed. Allow up to two weeks for the Post Office to deliver your tickets.
