UW-Green Bay’s signature camp for grieving children is wrapping up Friday (June 17) after another successful year of helping area kids who are coping with a loss. Camp Lloyd, founded and directed by Prof. Illene Cupit Noppe, combines traditional camp activities with grief therapy and support for attendees. After starting with nine campers as a half-day program in 2006, this year’s camp has 45 children and a full-day schedule Monday through Friday. Trained grief therapists and UW-Green Bay student counselors, or “buddies,” help run the camp and support its mission of healing.
