Activities Here at LGA
Our therapeutic activities offer a variety that spans anywhere from on-campus sports to off-campus fun outings and trips to the beach. This variety helps our students release stress, help focus on inner change, serve others, have good healthy fun, experience the outdoors, and participate in fun group outings. These may seem simple, but through daily participation in healthy group activities in a structured environment, change happens and healthy patterns of responsibility are formed.
