Any youth who needs to take a break from "scheduled programming" is able to do so with the consent of their companion.How much does DAYLE cost for the participant? For the companion?

This is because the Gathering registration is done by congregation. When your congregation leader fills out the form, there are pages for individual attendees to DAYLE. Both the DAYLE participant and companion must be registered for the gathering and registered by a congregational group. Registration opens October 9, 2011 and closes in May 2012.Do DAYLE participants need to change hotels between DAYLE and the Gathering?
DAYLE participants have the option of staying at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans for the duration of both DAYLE and the Gathering. However, DAYLE participants and their companions will also have the option to rejoin their congregational group, if they would prefer. If the DAYLE participant chooses to change hotels to be with his/her congregation, be sure to make appropriate housing reservations for the Gathering according to your congregation's assigned hotel. If needed, transportation to assist with this move will be provided by the Gathering. What if a DAYLE participant has mobility issues? How are they transported during DAYLE/the Gathering?
The Gathering also provides transportation during the Gathering for DAYLE participants who need assistance to and from the Convention Center and the Super Dome.
