Morning snack (ie. pretzels, goldfish, etc.) and afternoon LINXicles (aka Flavor Ice Pops) are provided to all campers. Please note that LINX Camps is nut safe. LINX Camps and LX Camps do not allow peanuts to be brought to or served at camp. We request that all camp families read and adhere to our Nut Free Policy.
You may choose to enroll in the LINX Lunch Box OR pack a lunch for your camper(s). The LINX Lunch Box is a convenient weekly option available to all camp families. All food provided is peanut and nut safe. All full-day campers who are NOT enrolled in LINX Lunch Box must arrive each day with lunch. Please see our What to Bring to Camp page for specifics in packing a lunch. Once again, we request that all camp families read and adhere to our Nut Free Policy.
WEEKLY CAMPER SCHEDULES
Every week at LINX Camps and LX Camps includes a variety of fun and enriching games and activities led by experienced and well-trained Camp Staff. As camp nears, all camp families receive access to view weekly schedules online. Please take a moment to browse ourSample Schedules to get an immediate sense of the typical camp week.
For the safety of campers and staff, our entire lunch menu and all snack items are peanut safe. We do not serve peanut butter or food products containing peanuts. We ask that all campers respect this safety concern by leaving any food containing nuts or nut products at home.
Parents are invited to visit their child while at camp throughout the summer. At Dana Hall, parents should park in the lot directly across from the Shipley Center near arrivals and dismissals line "A". At Mass Hort Elm Bank, parents should park in the main gravel lot across from the camp office (aka Mass Hort Visitors Center). All visitors are required to sign in at the Camp Office where you will receive a visitor tag to wear while on campus. Though Counselors will not be available to talk with you while working with their groups, they can be available at the end of the camp day. You can always call us with any questions you may have and speak with a staff member. Any parents who want to take their child(ren) directly from his/her camp group(s) are required to first sign-out at the camp office.
HEALTH CENTER & MEDICATIONS
The LINX Camps Health Center is located at the Camp Office. LINX Camps employs a full time Registered Nurse and also provides 2 remote first aid stations. The Health Center is fully stocked with all required first aid supplies. All camper medicines are required to go through the Health Center. Please do not send your child to camp with any medicines - hand them directly to the Nurse, the Bus Captain or your AD Captain.
