Service learning at Learn 2 Serve campService Learning 
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.

Physical Education 
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.

Working as a team at the Learn 2 Serve campCamp Goal
The goal of the program is to provide students with an exciting learning environment that promotes mental, social and physical well being. 

Classes 
Each student will participate in three 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 three highly qualified teachers who each hold at least a master's degree in the teaching field. Students will experience the enthusiasm and enjoyment of learning in a nontraditional setting.
