Swimming, dancing and remembering their loved ones — these were some of the activities campers participated in at the 20th annual Stepping Stones Camp, offered at no cost to campers by BJC Hospice. The three-day-long bereavement camp is offered to children ages 6-12 who have experienced the death of a loved one. Professional staff and volunteers lead the camp, which offers a safe place to explore grief — balanced by plenty of fun.
