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.
- All LINX Campers (General, Specialty, and Sports Campers) have a swim period 4 - 5 days per week which includes a swim lesson and free swim*. Our LINX fun-based learning philosophy 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 four 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. Boys and girls locker rooms are available for changing and storing camper belongings.
Concerns about swimming & your younger camper?
- 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 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, counselors join their campers in the water, or pool side to help maintain an even greater level of supervision.
