Many activities occurring at this year's convention will be taking place throughout the city of Philadelphia, so we encourage you to become familiar with the locations of our programming by viewing the map at the bottom of this page. Getting to Convention is easy as Philadelphia is accessible via many modes of transportation, with several detailed below. Siblings that require assistance should notify the National Board or contact local Siblings in advance.
You are encouraged to book early to guarantee the lowest rates.
Travel by train is often more comfortable than travel by bus; however, it also often comes with a higher price tag.
Several airlines offer service to Philadelphia. Siblings who require air travel are encouraged to check out Kayak.com to find the cheapest flight available at that time and compare these rates against those advertised on the airline's official website. The best airport to use is the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).
Car & Parking
Siblings are certainly welcome to drive into the city if it is most convenient for them. Parking is available at the Cambria Hotel, and is valet-only for $45 per day. This price includes in & out privileges for the day. There are also several parking garages available throughout the city of Philadelphia, and free street parking can often be found on weekends if Siblings are willing to walk a bit farther to the hotel. For more information on where to park, check out the Philadelphia Parking Authority, the meterUP app (available on the App Store here and Google Play here), or the SpotHero app (available on the App Store here and Google Play here).
We will be staying in the city of Philadelphia at the Cambria Hotel on Broad Street in Downtown Center City. This location is central to all that the city of Philadelphia has to offer.
Information about meals will also be provided here. In the past, breakfast, lunch, and dinner have been provided on Saturday while breakfast and lunch have been provided on Sunday. Most dietary needs, including foodborne allergies, can be accommodated. Please inform the National President of your dietary restrictions and needs prior to the National Convention.
