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. During her illness, Kerry and her husband Bob along with their two children Hudson (age 2) and Avery (age 4), received support from Dr. Heather Mohan who was at that time a counsellor and program coordinator in Palliative Care at Lions Gate Hospital. When Kerry died, her family requested that donations be made in her memory to Dr. Mohan’s program. Several months later Heather approached Bob with an idea for the funds that were raised in honour of Kerry. For many years, she had harboured a dream of creating a special retreat for young families grieving the death of a loved one. Bob enthusiastically supported Heather’s idea and the very first Camp Kerry was launched in September 2007 on Keats Island. Since then Camp Kerry BC has tripled in size and has been held in numerous retreat locations. Bereaved families from dozens of different urban, rural and remote communities from all over BC have participated in this special and unique healing experience.
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 again.
