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!
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.
This 8-week online program provides opportunities for adults who are bereaved to connect, to share their experiences of loss in a supportive environment, to honour their loved ones, and to learn strategies that can assist them in coping as they grieve.
Facilitated by counsellor and published writer Tama Recker, this series is suitable for those without any writing experience and seasoned writers alike. Participants will be guided to access creative thinking and mindfulness practices that encourage listening to inner thoughts and feelings as well to one’s grief process in new ways.
• 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.
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.
