Volunteer Profile – Douglas Hayter
How many camps have you attended?
Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?
Because I hope to be able to assist in some way in a young person’s journey through grief, from a place of sadness to a better place.
What is your favourite season and why?
Spring as it provides a glimmer of what is possible moving forward and gives a person suffering grief a chance to see a glimmer of hope of a better future.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about grief?
The very worst part of it will pass.
What inspires you about our campers?
Their ability to enjoy the Camp and what it has offer, to make new friends but also traverse difficult emotional issues.
A final note from Douglas:
Bonding with the kids and other mentors and staff is my favourite part of Camp.
