Swimming at LINX Camps & LX Camps
LINX Camps & LX Camps offer a superior swim program for ALL campers, led by carefully selected Red Cross Certified Lifeguards and Water Safety Instructors.
- LINX General Campers, Specialty Campers, Sports Campers, and Outward Adventure Campers have a 60 minute swim period each day which includes a 30 minute swim lesson and 30 minutes of free swim. Our LINX fun-based learning philosphy helps campers have a blast while increasing their comfort-level in the water and developing swim skills.
- LX Performing Arts Campers and LX Sports Campers have the option to swim 30 minutes, 4 times per week.
Individual skill assessments take place at the start of each camp session. Campers are divided into skill-appropriate swim groups based on their skill level.
Swimming at our Dana Hall Campus:
Campers enjoy swimming in the 6,500 square foot Aquatics Center at Dana Hall, featuring a 25-yard, six-lane pool for recreational and competitive swimming. Convenient boys and girls locker rooms are available for changing and storing camper belongings.
Swimming at our Mass Hort Elm Bank Campus:
The Oasis is our outdoor swimming center at Mass Hort Elm Bank. With 8 above ground heated swimming pools, each camper has the chance to enjoy swimming in an appropriately sized pool designed for teaching and free swim. Counselors remain in the water with our youngest campers (3yrs - 6yrs) throughout the swim period. The Oasis is complete with changing rooms and a Spray Zone for summer fun!
Concerns about younger campers swimming? Don't worry!
- At our Mass Hort Elm Bank campus we have shallow depth pools that enable our youngest campers to stand comfortably while receiving swim instruction and playing during free swim.
- At our Dana Hall campus, younger campers swim in the shallow end of the pool and use floating teaching platforms as necessary and beneficial.
While our staff is certified and trained to work with all swim levels, they are truly gifted when it comes to working with PeeWees (3 - 5 years) and Minors (K - 1st Grade). Their nurturing approach is comforting to you campers who are encouraged to participate and play. Practicing and teaching water safety is the top priority at all times. We maintain one swim instructor for every five swimmers. Additionally, campers' counselors join them in the water to help maintain an even greater level of supervision.
