Stepping Stones is a support program for grieving children and adolescents which offers an annual weekend camp in August for children ages 6-12 who have lost a loved one. At camp, children interact with others their age who have had similar experiences. They learn they are not alone and their feelings are normal. Stepping Stones Camp provides an environment in which children learn about grief, how they can safety express their feelings, identify coping tools and connect with peers. The camp is held at Camp Wyman in Eureka.
