Resources
 

There are a lot of resources within The Compassionate Friends and the greater community that support bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents. As a way to support our families we include here a few you might want to explore.

  • The Compassionate Friends National Website: http://www.compassionatefriends.org 
     
  • Camp Lloyd: Camp Lloyd is a week long day camp for grieving children, ages 7 - 14, held at the Mauthe/Ecumenical Center on the beautiful University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus. The camp 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. The Camp Lloyd staff consists of professional grief counselors and trained student interns from the UW-Green Bay. http://www.uwgb.edu/camplloyd/
