You are basically selling your points to them (at probably not such a great rate for you) and using that cash to pay the programs full price so you might as well sell the points on your own.

Oh. Yea thats not what I intended to do when I asked the question

Was hoping there was another way.
Most of these programs do end up selling out there rooms, which has me wondering why they wouldnt want me to get an outside room and just pay for meals. Seems like its just extra profit for them. Unless there is something im missing
there's a lot more costs then just food and hotel room

it probably is the room rate is such a small fraction  of the cost so your essentially just asking for a discount and in most cases the program is committed to all the rooms anyway so until they sell out they're losing by not charging you for the room

Wanted to know if there were any passover programs that would allow you to book your own room (either directly w/ the hotel or at a nearby hotel) and then pay to join the program. I called several and none were willing.
A few years ago I called the program at Atlantis Bahamas and they were willing to do that.
Don't remember their pricing or any other info. It was something ridicules though.
