Covering Camp Lloyd: Media tell story of special place for grieving kids

One of UW-Green Bay’s most unique summer camp offerings is in the news this morning, as the Green Bay Press-Gazette and NBC 26 on Wednesday sent reporters to cover the festivities at Camp Lloyd. As Log readers may recall, this special program for grieving kids blends traditional camp activities (swimming, arts and crafts, games, you name it) with special sessions designed to help young people deal with the loss of a loved one. Prof. Illene Cupit started Camp Lloyd in 2006 as a way to normalize grief, help kids cope and show them they’re not alone. As Cupit told the Press-Gazette, campers learn “It’s OK to still be a kid.” Click below for that story and a video, as well as coverage from NBC 26:
