• The Camp Kerry Society is pleased to announce the launch of a new support program for families who have experienced the sudden death of a young child. Created in loving memory of six-year old Cora Fey Cheney, the “Love, Cora” care packages are intended to provide comfort, hope and practical support for grieving families.
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.
These support groups are intended for adults impacted by the effects of working on the frontlines during the Covid-19 pandemic. Ideal for healthcare workers and essential service providers including; doctors, nurses, community support workers, teachers, and therapists.
This series is designed to support participants with any processing they may want to do specific to their grief while also supporting the reflective process. The intention of this series is to inspire and open some new pathways of listening rather than about becoming a better writer.
This 6-week online program provides opportunities for adults, who have been bereaved during COVID-19, to connect and to share their experiences of loss in a supportive, compassionate environment with others who understand the unique challenges of losing a loved one during a pandemic.
Kaleidoscope 2020 is the Camp Kerry Society’s first Virtual Grief Convention for Families and Professionals. From September 24 – 27th, we will gather as a community impacted by serious illness, grief and loss to share in four days of connection, inspired learning and hope.
In Canada there is virtually no government funding designated for bereavement care, yet it is well documented that unresolved grief can lead to an array of health concerns including; anxiety, depression, addiction, and more.
For every loss, it is estimated that at least five people will be significantly impacted, yet very few have access to adequate long-term supports.
Every donation that you give to the Camp Kerry Society helps us to provide support to children, youth, individualsand families impacted by loss and to thoseliving with a serious illness. As a result of people like you, lives are being transformed across Canada.
By becoming a sustaining partner through Giving Monthly donations you can help us provide hope and support life after loss.
