We offer help for grieving kids, teens, families and adults.

Bereaved children and teens yearn for normalization of their emotions and experiences that follow a death of a loved one. Even though the grieving process is unique, they find peace in knowing they are not alone. We assist families in building a framework for healing through education and understanding.

Camps for Kids

Camp programs for children are divided into age appropriate groups and transitioned through a variety of skills-based activities. Who died and how the loved one died are also factors considered in placement, along with the best possible fit for each child. Camp topics are presented in a variety of ways including small group discussions, role-play, music, humor and art.

Camps for Teens

Teenagers may attend any of our family camps with their parents and siblings; however, Stepping Stones of Hope offers a dedicated camp for teens called REACH. REACH is a weekend camp beginning on Friday night and ending late Sunday morning at Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center, a beautiful desert campus located in Carefree, Arizona. REACH is uniquely designed to provide teenagers non-traditional coping skills needed to face the challenges of dealing with the death loss of a loved one.

Camps for Adults

After many years of successfully sponsoring weekend camp programs for families grieving the loss of a loved one, Stepping Stones of Hope has designed a program for grieving adults whether or not they have dependent children living with them — Journeys, Pathways to Healing. This camp helps adults better understand and manage their grief after the death of a loved one.

For Grieving Families

How do you reach out to a child who has experienced the death of someone they love?

Campers have many opportunities to express their feelings and thoughts, as well as honor and celebrate their loved one. Experiences at camp help build a lifelong foundation for healthy mourning of the losses that inevitably come in life. Loss affects us all, but with special care, children especially can manage loss and move forward with healthy, happy lives.
