Camp Stepping Stones will be back in person from Friday May 31st to Sunday, June 2 and is looking for volunteers and campers! This camp is geared for kids aged seven to 17 who have recently lost a parent or somebody close to them. Volunteers create a safe environment for kids to explore their grief alongside other youth who are also grieving.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can fill out an application form that is available at

Different volunteer options are available, such as serving as cabin leaders and helping with activities.
