Usually EFY is contained within the campus where it is being held. Youth may face disciplinary action for leaving campus. Participants should only leave campus after following established check out policy and procedure.

The safety of our participants is our highest priority.

When checking a participant out from an EFY session, either temporarily or permanently, the following documents need to be presented to the staff who is on duty at the site office.

For a Parent/legal guardian:

  • Driver’s License

For a Relative/Friend (must be 18+ years old and authorized by the parent/legal guardian):

  • Driver’s License
  • Written consent from legal guardian
  • Photo copy of parent/legal guardian’s driver’s license (used to verify authenticity)

EFY will always call the parent/legal guardian listed in the primary or secondary emergency contact information to confirm the request. If the contact information provided is incorrect or the parent/legal guardian is not available by phone, the participant will not be checked out. Any exceptions must go through the main EFY Office (801-422-4493).

Participants must also check back in at the site office.

Early Arrival Info
Linens and TowelsBedding is not provided.
Air ConditioningThere is no air conditioning.
Additional Packing InstructionsParticipants must bring their own Linens and Towels. Size TBA.

Mailing/Delivery of Letters or Packages

We recommend that letters or packages NOT be sent to participants. If necessary medications or items are forgotten, please contact the session site office and make arrangements with the staff. For birthdays or a special occasion, consider putting a note or surprise in your youth’s suitcase instead of arranging a delivery. Delivering personal mail and non-essential/non-emergency items disrupts the EFY schedule and uses the valuable time and resources of our staff. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Driving Directions
Closest AirportSanta Barbara Airport (

From the Santa Barbara Airport:

Complementary shuttle service is provided to/from the Santa Barbara Airport and the Goleta stop of the Santa Barbara Airbus only. These complementary shuttles are provided by UCSB and are not provided to/from the Amtrak station or stops. This shuttle service runs from 7:00am-10:00pm. When a guest arrives, they should call the front desk number to be picked up. UCSB Conference Services staff will not be waiting for them at the airport. The Santa Rosa front desk number is 805-893-2772 (please note: this number is not activated until Saturday, June 17). Guests should sign up for a return shuttle at the front desk after arrival. Please call 805-893-3072 with any questions.

Additionally, if you choose this option, the vehicle that will be picking your youth up is a UCSB vehicle. There will be a sign on its window that says "Conference Services". Their staff wears blue, long-sleeved, collared shirts. This information will also be given to your participant when they call to request a pick-up. 

*If you plan to use this complementary option, PLEASE email Celina Reese ( with your participant's name so that we can know how many participants to plan for. 

From the Santa Barbara Amtrak Station: 

Many youth travel to and from the EFY Santa Barbara sessions via Amtrak. Before you buy an Amtrak ticket, please be sure you and your EFY participant youth understand Amtrak’s travel requirements for unaccompanied minors. These requirements are listed on the following web page: Please DO NOT purchase an adult Amtrak ticket for an underage youth. 
EFY will only provide shuttle service for 14-15 year from the Santa Barbara Amtrak station to UCSB and back again at the end of the week for a fee of $15.00 each way.
The Goleta Amtrak station is much closer to UCSB, but it is not staffed. That is why our shuttle service will operate to and from the Santa Barbara Amtrak station.
To sign up for the shuttle service:
  • Go to the main EFY website,
  • Click “Login” (at the upper right)
  • Once you enter your login information, your youth’s registration information should be displayed
  • Click “Edit” (near the bottom of the page)
  • Add the shuttle option, and pay for it when you check out
If you have any problems signing up for the shuttle, call our Registration office at 801-422-8925.

*If you plan to use the EFY Amtrak Shuttle, PLEASE email Celina Reese ( with your participant's name and train itinerary information so that we can know when to expect your youth to arrive. 
If you have questions about the shuttle option, call Celina Reese at 801-422-5740 or email her at
