2019 Camper Application

Bar 7 Ranch
October 5-7, 2019
Meeker, CO 81641

Dear Camper and Parent/Guardian:

Below you will find the complete application for Camp Good Grief. We realize that there is a lot to complete, especially if there is more than one child attending in a family. Thank you for your cooperation. We use all the information to make the weekend an enjoyable and safe experience. Be careful to complete all forms as your child is not guaranteed a place until all the paperwork is completed and the picture submitted. Acceptance is on a first come, first served basis. Cost for the event is $35 unless you have already paid or have received a scholarship. To pay with your credit card, please fill in the application below. If you are in need of a scholarship, please call for more information.

A member of the camp staff will meet with your child prior to camp. This meeting is to ensure that the grief camp experience will be beneficial for your child. It will also relieve anxiety for your child to meet someone from the staff and to learn more about the activities planned. Please call the office nearest you to schedule a time for this assessment.

Transportation information:

    Memorial Project

    We are asking each camper to PROVIDE ONE PHOTO of the person who died. It is important that each child have input into which picture he/she would like to choose. This can be a special time with your child as you look through photographs together. We will use this photo for a craft and memorial activity at camp. A 5x7 photo works the best but smaller sizes can be used as well. A sharp photo printed on photo paper works best. If the photo is one-of-a-kind and precious to you, we suggest that you send a reproduction.

    This will be an important part of the camp activities so please do not forget to send a photo with the camp registration. Please contact me at 245-5377 with any questions.

    Please do not send more than one photo for this project. If more than one photo is sent, we reserve the right to choose one photo to be laminated for the project.

    Thank you,
    Joni Beckner
    Director of Youth Programs
