Family Improv & Games: Virtual Therapeutic Play Sessions

Are you looking for new ways to engage and have fun with your kids amidst the restrictions created by the COVID-19 pandemic and despite the heaviness and sorrow that grief has brought into your lives? If there’s one important thing we’ve learned at Camp Kerry over the many years we’ve worked with grieving families, it’s that children who have suffered a loss still need to play…and sometimes they really need the adults in their lives to be willing to play alongside them!

Connections: Frontline Conversations

COVID-19 has pushed frontline workers/essential service providers in hospitals, schools and community-based services into coping with unprecedented levels of stress, uncertainty, anxiety, change, loss and grief.

These one-hour drop-in groups ~ facilitated by members of the Camp Kerry team who know just what it’s like to work on the frontlines during a pandemic ~ provide space for authentic conversations about the unique challenges you are coping with in your work setting, what’s helping, what’s not and anything else that is on your mind! Confidentiality is assured.

Connections: Virtual Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Group

Drop-in Grief Support Group: Christmas Eve 2020

Whether a loss be recent or long ago, the winter holiday season is often a difficult time for those who are grieving. If you are one of the many who are struggling this year then we encourage you  to attend this virtual support group. Space will be held so that participants have opportunities to share, to listen, and to support one another. After the first hour of structured facilitation, participants can remain online to continue conversations with one another.

The History of Camp Kerry

Camp Kerry BC was founded in 2007 by Dr. Heather Mohan and named after Kerry Kirstiuk; an inspiring young mother and wife who lost her battle to cancer in 2006. The movement to bring Camp Kerry to the Maritimes has been driven forward primarily through the passion, persistence and dedicated volunteer efforts of a Camp Kerry Alumni and New Brunswick native, Pam Pastirik, and her family. An Atlantic Canada Advisory Committee — based in Saint John, New Brunswick — with expertise in family health care, mental health, corporate leadership and fundraising was established in 2014 with the goal of raising awareness and funds to help bring this unique program to Atlantic Canada families.

What’s Happening Now

As most of you are aware, we are in the midst of unprecedented times and uncertainty. In response to Covid-19, many of our existing services (community choirs, support groups, workshops) are now being offered online at no cost, so we encourage everyone who feels the need for support and wellness to take advantage of them.

Soon after it safe for large groups to gather, our award-winning family bereavement retreat program, Camp Kerry, will resume once agaain.
