Camp Stepping Stones

This year’s camp was held May 31- June 2.

CAMP STEPPING STONES is a grief camp offered yearly providing a camp experience for youth ages 7 to 17 years who have experienced the recent death of someone significant in their lives. Led by compassionate volunteers, campers are provided a safe environment to explore their feelings of grief with peers who are also grieving.

  • Must have experienced a significant death
  • Must live in Manitoba
  • Must complete and return the application prior to the deadline date
  • Child must not have a history of or demonstrate any physical, emotional or verbal behavior that could endanger themselves or others
  • At the discretion of the Camp Stepping Stones Committee, applicants may apply to attend CSS up to a maximum of two(2) times only if they have experienced a subsequent death, please note further information may be required from other professional support involved with the applicant 

    Read through Camp Stepping Stones Goals and Principles.


    VOLUNTEERS The benefits of volunteerism are plentiful: feelings of achievement, connecting with a diverse range of people who want to make a difference, developing new skills, offering your talents, engaging in new experiences and community involvement. Recent studies indicate that volunteerism does not just benefit your emotional well-being but may also contribute positively to your physical health!

    Join the Camp Stepping Stones team and experience the therapeutic effects of volunteerism through a meaningful weekend. The main role of our volunteers is to provide friendship and support, not grief therapy. Volunteer applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
