Volunteer Profile – Sheri Andrews
How many camps have you attended?
Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?
Because I wish I’d had Camp Magic when I was 12 and my Dad died suddenly of a heart attack. I hope to be able to offer to other kids what I know would have made the world of a difference to me at that time.
What is your favourite season and why?
Spring – because everything feels new and fresh and it is a hopeful time.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about grief?
You don’t ever get over your grief, you just find a way to build a new life alongside it.
What inspires you about our campers?
So many things, but the one that stands out the most is the way that they connect and care for each other.
A final note from Sheri:
Thank you Feel the Magic for everything that you do to provide this amazing opportunity to grieving families and also for all that I gain from being a part of it. I always leave Camp Magic a little changed by the experience.
