Stepping Stones Camp for Children
The journey through grief and loss can be difficult and lonely, especially for a child.
Our Stepping Stones camp provides a safe place for campers to explore their grief emotions, balanced with plenty of fun. The bereavement camp, offered at no charge, is designed for children ages 6-12 who have experienced the death of a family member or close friend. The camp is held in Eureka, Missouri, and led by professional staff and volunteers.
Campers gather at Camp Wyman for three days in August for therapeutic activities to help them reflect on their feelings of grief. Stepping Stone camp offers a place for children to remember and honor their loved one in an atmosphere of understanding and encouragement, among other kids their own age, who are going through the same thing.
There's also plenty of swimming, games, crafts and a carnival.
Stepping Stones camp is open to any child who has lost a loved one, not only those who were served by BJC Hospice.
