How many camps have you attended?

At least five or six!

Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?

I began volunteering to help make a positive difference in a child’s life. I continue to volunteer due to seeing the impact Camp has on these kids and the benefits it brings for their future.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring. I love the feeling of coming out of dark times and feeling the renewed hope of new life growing. The brightness of coming out of winter and the feeling that brings. The light finally beginning to shine.

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

Take one day at a time.

What inspires you about our campers?

Their resilience.

A final note from Lee:

I appreciate Camp. I hadn’t really lost anyone too close except for my grandparents, but when I lost my dad 18 months ago, the tools I learnt from Camp really helped me to cope. I don’t know how I would have coped if I didn’t have those tools.
