UWGB hosts Camp Lloyd for grieving children this week
The 11th Annual Camp Lloyd — UW-Green Bay’s summer camp helping children cope with the loss of a loved one — is this week, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., June 20-24. The camp that began with nine children in 2006 is approaching a camp-capacity 50 participants again this year. The weeklong day camp for children, ages 7 to14, is held at the Mauthe Center. Combined with the fun and excitement of a typical camp experience (including arts and crafts, music, games, swimming, hiking and even a day-trip to Door County for paddle boarding and kayaking), Camp Lloyd also provides time for campers to reflect, explore their own experiences of grief, share and find support from others.
