Room arrangements for youth are based on two to four youth per room and assigned by age and sex. Youth can request roommates when registering. If a county has only one participant, we will match with another county.
Chaperones – At least one adult chaperone must accompany every 10 youth. Counties may combine to share chaperones. Chaperones must register and pay the same fee as youth participants. Chaperones will be asked to transport and accompany the youth to their group to activities at the UND School of Law, Baymont Inn and Suites, and more. Chaperones will not room with youth participants and will be assigned two to a room. If you wish to room by yourself, you will be responsible for your own room reservations and room expenses.
