The Learn-2-Serve summer program is a three week camp for rising 5th—8th graders.
It will be led by master level teachers and graduate counselors. This camp will
offer a blend of academic studies, physical education and service learning opportunities.
Based on the LaGrange College campus, this summer program is designed to align
with the LaGrange College mission of "Challenging the mind, and inspiring the soul."
Service Learning is a form of experiential education where students learn what
is needed to fix a pressing community problem and then actually implement their
innovative solutions. Learning to serve is an active and fun process that makes
a difference in the life of our community through collaborative hands-on group
projects facilitated by master teachers and graduate counselors.
During Learn-2-Serve, each camper will develop physical skills through a wide
variety of group and individual sports activities including swimming and fun at
the LaGrange College Natatorium.
The goal of the program is to provide students with an exciting learning environment
that promotes mental, social and physical well being.
Each student will participate in two academic classes during the morning session.
Students will work together on projects designed to enhance student learning and
retention. In addition, campers will learn new skills by employing service learning
techniques which will not only enhance their academic studies, but also reinforce
values and give them a deeper understanding of their new found skills.
Classes will be taught by four highly qualified teachers who each hold a master's
degree in the teaching field. Students will experience the enthusiasm and enjoyment
of learning in a nontraditional setting.
This summer program offers student's students many opportunities to build positive
social behaviors related to forming and maintaining relationships, assertiveness
in problem solving and critical thinking. Value will be placed on respect for individual
