Family Retreat to Remember
Due to the COVID19 pandemic registration for Camp Stepping Stones has been postponed until further notice. To receive email updates about Camp Stepping Stones or other children’s programming at Care Dimensions please email Camp@CareDimensions.org and ask to be added to our contact list.
Each summer we offer a family retreat for children and adults who have experienced the death of someone close to them. The one-day camp offers children traditional camp experiences with hands-on activities to help them express their feelings and remember loved ones. Adults have the opportunity to relax and attend workshops to learn skills to help their children manage their grief. The entire family will have fun while learning valuable coping skills and bonding with other families who understand what they are going through.
Camp Stepping Stones is staffed by a team of professional bereavement counselors and trained volunteers.
*Special programming for teens
- Arts and crafts
- Common grief reactions in children
- Communicating effectively
- Helping kids cope with grief
Adults receive comprehensive information and support about raising grieving children.
