Questions About Tickets
Purchasing Resold Tickets
Q: I purchased tickets from someone who is reselling tickets. How do I get them attached to my club/ conference?"
A: There is no way to connect individual tickets to a conference. We can simply change the details of a full account which will alter all the tickets in an account, so unless someone sold you all the tickets in their account, there is no way to attach the individual ticket. Simply notify your conference about the resale.
Q: Can I buy an international ticket if I am in the North American Division? (or vice versa)
A: No, you cannot.

TICKET RESALE WARNING
Please note that each Camporee ticket has a unique number to admit one person to Camporee.
It has come to our attention that some individuals are reselling a single ticket several times. Before you transfer payment, ask for a list of the unique ticket numbers in order to check that you will receive that many with their unique barcodes.
The Center for Youth Evangelism is not connected with or responsible for such activities, and cautions all buyers to ask questions, as well as confirm a secure method of payment (ie. Paypal) with buyer protection before paying for or reselling tickets. In order to protect yourself from scams, do not use a wire transfer, or Western Union to purchase tickets. If you are not sure of the best way to safely transfer money, please contact your bank.

How does Hosting a club work?
A Host Club is a North American Division Pathfinder Club that commits and is approved to provide food and tents for a group of international guests from Monday evening, August 12, 2019 through Sunday morning, August 18, 2019.
International guests who choose to be hosted by a North American Division club or conference will be responsible for their own bedding, towels, soap, clothing, and other personal items. The NAD hosting club will provide food and camping space. International guests are also responsible for all travel expenses to and from Camporee, visas, and any shopping or other travel while in the USA.
Hosts will supply tents and food at their campsite from Tuesday evening through Sabbath evening. Hosted guests will camp with their host group, within the North American Division area, organized by conferences within unions. Once we have introduced you to your host via email, we encourage you to clarify expectations and prepare to help each other make the Camporee a life shaping experience for each member.
