Wests Tigers provide Feel The Magic with the opportunity to raise awareness and funds through various match day activities. Feel The Magic has developed Australia's largest grief education and support program 'Camp Magic' for children between the ages of 7-17 who have lost a parent, sibling or legal guardian. Their mission is to create environments where children who have experienced grief can be inspired and empowered to succeed in spite of their loss. 'Camp Magic' allows children to meet others in similar situations, which in turn eliminates the isolation that grief can often bring. The program helps build resilience and age appropriate coping strategies the child can implement into their day-to-day lives so they can learn to live with their grief in a healthier and positive way.
