The camp where grieving kids can be kids for a week returned to the UW-Green Bay campus this summer. All of the Camp Lloyd therapists are former Camp Lloyd Buddies and UW-Green Bay students. The camp schedule is filled with fun activities such as arts and crafts, music, games, swimming and hiking. It is also a time for campers to explore their own experiences of grief, find support from each other and realize that their feelings are normal.

Fox 11 covers Camp Lloyd

One of UW-Green Bay’s summer camps, Camp Lloyd, offers peer support to children who have lost a loved one. Each camper is matched with a UW-Green Bay student who has studied a full semester just to intern at the camp. The camp offers a safe environment to talk about feelings related to losing someone important in one’s life. Read full story on Fox 11.

Camp Lloyd, a week-long day camp for children ages 7 to 14 who are grieving the loss of loved ones, returned to UW-Green Bay, June 24-29, 2018. 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.

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.

The Camp Lloyd staff included 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.

Camp Lloyd started as a dream of UW-Greeen Bay Professor Illene Cupit (Human Development). The camp is funded by the generosity of UW-Green Bay, community donors and the Green Bay Packers.
