Dear Parent/Guardian,

Camp Evergreen Registration

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Thank you for your interest in our day camp for grieving children. Camp Evergreen will be held June 5, 6, and 7, 2019 at Camp Hillmont in White Bluff, TN. Alive provides transportation to/from camp daily from our Nashville office. All campers/guardians are also required to attend the mandatory Camper Pizza Party/Parent Orientation scheduled for Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Acceptance to camp is based on several criteria. Because we want to ensure the best possible experience for every participant, each application is reviewed in detail and includes a prospective camper/guardian orientation meeting via phone or in person before acceptance. This allows our team to get to know your family and confirm your child’s readiness for this specialized camp prior to final registration. Space is limited, and applications will be accepted on a first come first served basis. Please note: your camper’s reservation will not be confirmed until all paperwork has been submitted and the orientation meeting has taken place.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the fee for camp is just $30.00 per camper. A limited number of scholarships may be available for those in need. Please inquire about scholarships when you register.

On this page, you will find a registration form and medical consent form to complete and submit online. The Important Information section provides more details and answers to questions you may have.

We look forward to your participation in this life-changing program. Should you have any questions, please contact Alive’s GriefLine at 615-963-4732 or email griefsupport@alivehospice.org.

Sincerely,

Katherine Reynolds & Ali Drescher
Camp Evergreen Coordinators
