About Kerry’s Thrift Boutique

Kerry’s Boutique is a Charity Thrift Shop and a Social Enterprise of the Camp Kerry Society that was established in the summer of 2014. The shop features both new & quality used items including; clothing, housewares, small furniture, gift products and more. 100% of the profits generated from the store are used to fund bereavement programs for individuals and families that are provided by the Camp Kerry Society. The Society currently supports hundreds of children, youth & families affected by grief & loss every year who reside in British Columbia, Ontario, and Atlantic Canada.

The main objectives of this Charity Thrift Shop are:

  • To generate revenue to support the Camp Kerry Society’s programs and services.
  • To advance education and awareness of grief, loss and bereavement issues through the provision of printed information to members of the public.
  • To advance education and awareness of grief, loss and bereavement support services provided by the Camp Kerry Society to members of the public.
  • To promote the health and well-being of bereaved individuals from the community by offering them a compassionate environment where they can share their stories of loss with trained volunteers and staff.
  • To promote the health and well-being of bereaved youth and other vulnerable populations by providing them with a safe and compassionate environment where they can engage in meaningful volunteer opportunities while receiving training in valuable work-related skills in the retail field.

Our team takes great pride in what we do and in what we have created, for Kerry’s Boutique is a Different Kind of Thrift Store!

Let’s Get Creative!

With classes suspended across the country and families practicing social distancing by staying home, we know lots of parents are looking for ways to keep their kids busy. At Camp Kerry we believe in the power of art to inspire hope and possibility – especially during difficult times.

So we asked Sophie, one of Camp Kerry’s awesome art therapists, to put together some at-home art activity ideas for you and your family. These activities use common household items. You can easily improvise and substitute with whatever items you have available to you. Have fun!

Connections: Families

In response to Covid-19 and the need to practice self-distancing, the Camp Kerry Society has chosen to provide more online services in addition to some of our existing programs and our well established network, “Circles of Strength Online”.

In Response to Coronavirus

After ongoing discussions with members of our team and consultations with frontline health care professionals, we have concluded that it is in the best interests of both our participants and our teams to postpone all of our current group programs across Canada until further notice.

2019 Annual Report

At Camp Kerry, we go beyond traditional counselling approaches to harness the love, compassion and creativity of an entire community to support and embrace those who are grieving.
