Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?

When I heard about Feel the Magic, my heart jumped and I just knew that it was something I wanted to be involved in, I have never felt so certain of anything like the lightening bolt that hit me when I heard about camp.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring – it holds the promise of new beginnings, hope and colours your world.

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

Allow yourself to grieve, you don’t have to be “strong”.

What inspires you about our campers?

Their vulnerability then ultimately their trust in what Feel the Magic does for them.

What is your favourite part about camp?
Seeing the transformation of the children from when they arrive with sad faces, unsure of what’s ahead, scared of the unknown, to the knowledge and assurance that they are not alone and that they can feel safe and cared for in their grief.
A final note from Karen:

Thank you Feel the Magic for your vision, compassion, empathy and love for all, it is an honour and very humbling experience to be a part of this journey.
