Children's Health Form


 

*Please send your registration form to Nola Avey at nolaa@massanettasprings.org

*It is Massanetta’s desire for our retreat experiences to be affordable for everyone in need of them.  If funding is the only thing keeping you from attending, please be in touch with Hannah Altman, our  Acting Program Director at hannaha@massanettasprings.org to work out a plan to enable you to come.

 

Children's Program

One of the ways we are making Called Together welcoming to families is by providing childcare for all planned activities during Called Together. As you are forming a community with other couples, we hope the children will be doing the same among their peers.

Helpful Things To Know

 
 
  • All Massanetta caregivers have gone through a national criminal background check. They have also completed Massanetta’s required Child Protection Training.

  • Since they will be in our care during retreat activities, we need parents to fill out a health form on each child. We cannot take children into the program without completed forms. Children's Health Form

 

  • Parents will be responsible for administering regular medications. Massanetta staff will be happy to keep any emergency medication your child may need during childcare times. (Epipens, Rescue Inhalers, etc.)

  • All children will need a bag with a spare change of clothes, swim suit, sunscreen, and water bottle.

  • Snacks will be provided at appropriate times as part of their children’s program registration fee.

  • If your child is in diapers, please provide your child’s caregiver with appropriate diapers, wipes, etc. (Swim diapers required at the pool.)

  • Children will be grouped by age approximately 2 weeks prior to the event once we know how many children are coming and their ages.

  • As of 5/31/2017, all participant families will be housed in the same location. This will also be the location where evening social time, etc. occurs. Bringing baby monitors may be helpful for you. (Hubler Lodge also has WiFi, so using phones, tables, etc. should also work.)

  • Massanetta has a limited number of pack and play cribs. If you need one provided for you, please let us know as soon as you can. (If you are able to bring yours easily, that would help us.)
