Stepping Stones to Building Friendships

 

Many children have difficulty making friends on their own; they need help. Research has shown that social skills can be taught and the most dramatic improvements are accomplished in a group setting. Camp, with its new people and activities, is a natural setting to develop social skills and build strong friendships. Stepping Stones to Building Friendships is designed to proactively teach the social skills that children need to make and keep friends through a combination of skill building during “friendship meetings” and social skills coaching throughout the camp session. This multi-dimensional approach was originally developed as part of the Stepping Stones program, a social skills group therapy training program for children from 4 to 18 years old, and the techniques have been modified for use by camp counselors.
