Camp Stepping Stones is for children aged 6 to 18 and their families who have experienced the death of someone important, a space for parents/caregivers and kids to connect with other grieving families, to honor and remember those who have died, and have some fun.

With COVID safety precautions in mind, Camp Stepping Stones will be mostly virtual with weeklong programming and the option to participate in the in-person, outdoor family activity at the Glen Urquhart School campus in Beverly, Mass.


July 17: Families have the option to meet Camp staff, participate in the in-person family activity, and pick up their supplies for the week. We will mail supplies to those families who do not attend in person.*

July 19 to 22: Virtual Programming via Zoom

Monday through Thursday: Children and teens tune in from 5 to 6:30 p.m. for age-appropriate group activities designed just for them.

Tuesday and Thursday: Adults and caregivers can access programming intended to support and educate, 8 to 9 p.m.


Registration is required, open April 1. Camp Stepping Stones is free for all participants, limited to residents of Massachusetts.

*Safety measures will be communicated to families prior to arrival.*
