Forty-five Pi Kappa Phi fraternity members from across the nation will take an alternative spring break trip to Clemson to help a camping program prepare to serve people with disabilities this summer.

Part of the Clemson parks, recreation and tourism management department, the Outdoor Lab is a camp and conference center on Hartwell Lake that provides summer camps for children and adults with disabilities.
