How many camps have you attended?

One.

Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?

Providing a environment where kids can express their thoughts and feelings – in their way and on their terms, not only amongst adults, but with their peers – is an amazing and unique experience. I also believe that empowering children through their grief leads to building strong, resilient and emotionally intelligent adults.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring – you have a sense of the things that have passed and of the impact these changes have left behind and are hopeful about what the next season is going to bring.

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

That grief is another expression of love.

What inspires you about our campers?

Their kindness and thoughtfulness.

A final note from Samantha:

My favourite part about Camp is that you provide an opportunity for another person to share and to grow.
