Camp Lloyd students are here this week
An innovative summer camp designed to help children cope with the loss of a loved one is back on campus through Friday (June 17). Camp Lloyd, begun in 2006 by UW-Green Bay Human Development Prof. Illene Noppe, offers children ages 7-14 the chance to engage in traditional summer camp activities such as games, song, swimming and crafts, while also providing specialized activities and trained staff to help them cope with their grief. The day camp headquartered at the Mauthe Center will this year feature visits by therapy dogs, memory box decoration, a visit with wild animals facilitated by the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary, and the traditional closing tree planting and balloon release. We’ll have coverage later this week.
