The document Family Example Form.doc is designed for Family Events where one person registers several people at once. Follow the same directions for use as you did for the single person registration form in preparation for use. You could also modify this form for a youth event where one leader registers many students. We have left several blanks for various rate package. Christian Retreats Network properties offer discounts for family ministry groups with large discounts for teens and children who stay with their parents.
Feel free to adjust these forms as needed. We included some space for you to make notes about registrations being recieved, deposits paid, etc. Another helpful features is Google Docs. You can create free online forms, it puts all the information into a spread sheet. Less Data entry for you that way! You could even take your paper copies and enter them into the exact same form so that your online registrations are in sync with your paper registrations. Google Docs works just like Excel so you can use formulas to figure things like payments owed, or setting up rooming, etc. etc. A video showing how to use our example form is below and the template for the online version is available on GoogleDocs.
