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.
