      2019 Methodist College Learn and Serve Summer Camp: Incoming 5th - 8th Graders

      Methodist College is hosting a unique community service camp for students entering 5th grade through 8th grade for the 2019-2020 school year. The camp features upper level Methodist College Nursing students as the camp leaders who will design the curriculum and deliver it to the campers.  Practical learning experiences in health care and healthy living are taught in the morning and real-life service projects in community organizations are conducted in the afternoon.  The service projects are directly related to the morning learning experience.  More importantly, campers serve their community along-side their college student counterparts. Each day of the camp features a learning component and a service component. For example, the Nursing students will teach the campers about nutrition and healthy living and then volunteer at the Midwest Food Bank.  On another day, the campers will learn about aging and caring for others in need.  That afternoon, they go to Heddington Oaks to interact with the residents (paint nails, play games) and distribute the blankets.  Cost$125.00 (plus service fee charged by third-party registration service) Additional Items (Optional) Extra Camp T-shirt - $10.00 (one t-shirt is included with registration) Before and After Care - $20.00 (7:45 to 9:00am and 4:00 to 5:15pm) Lunches - $25.00
