West Vancouver teenager Camden Hussey is back at raising funds for the North Shore Rescue.
The 15-year-old Grade 10 student at St. Thomas Aquinas Society had earlier sold close to 300 special North Shore Rescue brand socks and donated $2,400 from the profits to the rescue group.
Now, he has 400 toques that he plans to sell to North Shore community this winter — with the proceeds again going to North Shore Rescue.
The NSR-branded touques are now available for sale. The proceeds from the sale of these ‘100 per cent acrylic, high quality, thick, warm and comfortable’ toques will be going to North Shore Rescue.

The toque costs $25.
A school project on entrepreneurship first inspired Camden to manufacture and sell NSR-branded socks.
The organisation “popped” in his mind while he worked on a school entrepreneurship project last year. Though the group was always in the news with inspiring stories of daredevil rescues, Camden said there was a personal reason he thought of involving NSR in his school project.
Several years ago, someone close to him had gone missing in the forest in West Vancouver. He isn’t sure what the outcome would have been if it wasn’t for brave volunteers of the North Shore Rescue.
“North Shore Rescue helicopter happened to be there in the area and they were able to help and locate the person. That has been an influence on him,” says Camden’s mother, Rochelle Hussey.
Camden is certain he will volunteer with NSR at some point in his life. “I and my dad would love to join them as volunteers,” he says.
