GratitudeAmerica Military Support Retreat Application
***Please only fill out one application. We will attempt to accommodate your first retreat choice - you will be selected for the most appropriate retreat by our staff. Filling out more than one application only makes it more difficult to process your application.***

We are grateful to you for taking the time to fill out the retreat application. We recognize that some of the information may be personal and you may not want to share it. We have designed the application to help us learn a little more about you to ensure a great experience for you during the retreat. There will be plenty of opportunity for feedback during the retreat as well. Our mission is to provide service members and their primary support persons with an opportunity to relax, restore connections with others who have experienced deployments, and to enjoy recreation in a relaxed and beautiful setting.
1. Complete the ENTIRE questionnaire as honestly as possible. It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete the application.
2. Space at the retreat is limited. You will be contacted to learn whether you will be participating in our retreat. IMPORTANT: Our initial response to your application will be via email. Monitor your spam/junk folder for an email from us as our emails end up there 50% of the time!
3. Retreat applicants who are not able to be accommodated will automatically be considered for future retreats.
4. Please keep in mind that we require participants to arrive on time and stay for the entire retreat to realize the full benefit of the experience.
5. Thanks for your efforts and for your support. We appreciate YOU!
