“It seems like magic”

Give to send grieving children & families to Camp Kerry


What happens at Lumara’s Camp Kerry can feel like magic. These annual family retreats are a place where joy and grief mingle together. Where those isolated by loss connect with people who finally understand them. Where powerful healing takes place within a loving, compassionate community.

We invite you to take two minutes to watch our new Camp Kerry video. As you’ll hear, Camp Kerry is where children, youth, and families who are grieving the death of a loved one find their community of support.

This is where the magic happens!

We cannot wait to host 50 families at our annual Camp Kerry Family Retreats in BC and Ontario this fall. But we need your help to make this possible!

Your donation helps cover the costs of running Camp Kerry Family Retreats so that we can reduce financial barriers and keep it accessible for all families. Your contribution will help Lumara cover costs like facility rentals, food, program supplies, adventure programming, volunteer training, and more.

This is what happens when you make a gift to Lumara: you step up to make sure that those struggling with the challenges of grief and loss don’t feel alone.

Thank you for caring
