Dimensions has developed Camp Stepping Stones to support children, teens and their families through a combination of activities including arts and crafts, games and sports, as well as pampering, relaxation and workshops for adults. 

Parents and other adult caregivers of campers will have the opportunity to attend relevant workshops, relax and unwind, and socialize with other parents/adult caregivers who know what it's like to raise grieving children. The entire family will have fun while learning new coping skills.
