UW-Green Bay’s Camp Lloyd adds hours to help grieving kids

GREEN BAY — Camp Lloyd, a weeklong day camp for children ages 7 to 14 who are grieving the loss of loved ones, returns to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay next week. This year’s camp — offered Sunday through Friday, June 24-29, 2018, has some big changes, said camp director and creator Prof. Illene Cupit.

“For the first time we are going to offer a family-style camp on Sunday, where children and their parents or guardians can participate in activities together,” Noppe said. “We hope that this will give families an opportunity to all participate in several grief-related and fun activities, and help ease new campers into our program.  The rest of the week will then focus on the kids.

Camp days start at 8:30 a.m. and last until 4:30 p.m. Camp is stationed at the University Union.

Popular activities that have been a part of camp include daily healing circles, arts and crafts, singing songs and playing music, tie-dying, quiddich, swimming, Bay Beach, kayaking, drum circles, archery and many more.

Camp Lloyd provides a safe and fun environment for children to learn they’re not alone in dealing with grief. It gives campers time to explore their own experiences of grief, realize their feelings are normal and find support from one another.

The Camp Lloyd staff includes 30 UW-Green Bay student “Buddies” who form special bonds with the campers. This year 4/5 grief therapists were former Camp Lloyd Buddies who have gone on to graduate school in clinical psychology, school psychology or counseling. “We’re excited and ready to meet and work with our new kids,” said Cupit.  “We want to give them a wonderful week that will hopefully help them learn how to cope and learn that it’s OK to find joy in life again.”

Camp Lloyd started as a dream of Cupit, a professor of Human Development at UW-Green Bay. The camp is funded by the generosity of UW-Green Bay, community donors, the Green Bay Packers.  This year a scholarship has been set up by a community donor to help children who otherwise would not be able to afford to come.

Joseph Moran, 1979

UW-Green Bay learned of the passing of award-winning faculty member Joseph Moran (Natural and Applied Sciences). Services are Monday. According to the obituary, Moran, 74, died peacefully Wednesday, June 20, 2018, at Angel’s Touch Assisted Living in Ledgeview.

He began teaching at UW-Green Bay in 1969 as an instructor of meteorology in the College of Environmental Sciences and retired as a professor of Natural and Applied Sciences in 2001 with emeritus status. In 1993 he received the Founders Award for Teaching Excellence. Also in 1993 the UW System Regents Teaching Award, cited Moran for his “profound ability to communicate subject matter effectively and inspire in students an enthusiasm for learning.”

“His humor and occasionally exaggerated Boston accent kept his students engaged, whether he was teaching meteorology, earth science or environmental science,” the obituary reads. In 1991, Moran was named the Barbara Hauxhurst Cofrin Professor of Natural Science and in 1994 received the Boston College Alumni Award for Teaching Excellence and was included in the American Men and Women of Science.

Moran consistently received high rankings in student and peer evaluations. In a statement of his teaching philosophy, Moran explained “I learned to respect students as people, to recognize their strengths, to deal honestly with their short-comings, to encourage them to tackle things that they didn’t think they could do, to be ever vigilant for the late-bloomer and to encourage them to keep their university experience in its proper perspective.”

Street roller helps create art during Really Big Prints 3.0 at UW-Manitowoc

Street roller helps create art during Really Big Prints 3.0 at UW-Manitowoc

Manitowoc, Wis. — Printmakers from across the country will travel to the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc campus once again for the Really Big Prints 3.0 event July 11-14. The artists create limited edition relief prints so large they require an unusual item — a street roller — to transfer the ink to the papers. This is the third time the campus has hosted this event held every two years.

The public is invited to view the artists at work 9 a.m.-7 p.m. each day in the UW-Manitowoc parking lot, 705 Viebahn St., Manitowoc. New this year will be the opportunity for community members to watch the artists and purchase lunch on-site. Proceeds from the food sales will benefit UW-Manitowoc student activities.

Relief printing is the process of rolling ink onto a block where recessed areas have been created and are ink free. The inked surface is brought into firm contact with the paper to create the print. At this event, blocks as large as 32” x 60” will be used by the printmakers. A street roller on loan from the city of Manitowoc will be used to transfer the ink to the paper. Working individually or as a team, the artists have a five-hour time slot to print their piece.

“In addition to the relaxed atmosphere, this event is unique in that unlike other street roller events, each artist or team has the time to print an edition of their prints, and the work goes directly into a museum show,” said Berel Lutsky, art professor at UW-Manitowoc and one of the event organizers.

The pieces created during Really Big Prints will be featured at the Rahr-West Museum of Art in Manitowoc from July 22-Sept. 16, with a closing reception 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 16. After that exhibit, the prints move to the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum and then other venues.

Really Big Prints is a collaboration between art professors at three colleges and universities. It is planned and organized by Lutsky; Katie Ries, assistant professor of art at St. Norbert College and Benjamin D. Rinehart, associate professor of art at Lawrence University Wriston Art Center.

The event is held with the support and cooperation of the Rahr West Museum of Art, the city of Manitowoc and the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum. Ink for this event was donated by Graphic Chemical & Ink of Villa Park, Illinois.

A celebration event and an opportunity for potential print collectors to meet the printmakers is planned for 5:30 p.m. on Friday, July 13 at UW-Manitowoc. The fee for guests is $25 per person and advance reservations are required by emailing Ben Rinehart at

Previously held during 2014 and 2016, the Really Big Prints team received the UW Colleges Chancellor’s Friends and Advocates Award in 2017.
