Illene Cupit

Illene CupitProfessor, Human Development

Professor Illene Cupit is a caring and compassionate educator dedicated to active learning. In 2006 she founded Camp Lloyd, a summer camp for children who are dealing with the death of a family member. Her vision was a summer camp that allowed grieving children a bit of fun and release, but also a place that allows them to share their experience with others dealing with similar situations, and to learn that grieving is a natural process. Meanwhile, participating families express heartfelt appreciation for what they describe as a life-changing experience for their children.

For nearly a decade, the program has given UWGB students opportunities to gain professional-level experience in counseling and therapy, in a real-life setting.
