How many camps have you attended?

One.

Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?

I had a very dark time through my own grief journey a few years back and I wanted to be able to support children to have more positivity through their grief journeys.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring. As we are coming out of our sadness, we embrace life with change but still have so much love for our loved one who has passed.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about grief?

Everyone’s grief journey is different and has no time frame.

What inspires you about our campers?

Whilst the Campers can be vulnerable at times, they have such strength inside of them and can see the good through all they are going through.

A final note from Ashleigh:

It’s so inspiring to be at Camp, seeing all the mentors and support team come together to help so many kids have a positive journey through grief. It’s absolutely heart warming to see all the love and kindness in one place, I hope to be a part of many more Camps.
