Freedom Camp (2nd - 8th Grades)

Overview

Give Campers the "Freedom" to Choose!

Freedom Camp, our most popular full day camp, is deeply rooted in LINX Camps traditions and caters to campers entering 2nd - 8th grade who are looking for an unforgettable, traditional day camp experience.

Freedom Campers are placed in age appropriate camper groups. They begin each day with camp-wide opening ceremonies and end each day with spirit and song competitions, skits, and camper/counselor challenges as part of our camp-wide closing ceremonies.

Whether chanting for a "squasher", searching for the "missing link", competing for "GSOP"(the Golden Slice of Pizza), or getting amped up for the Eagle Games, our small camper groups are always focused on the shared community values of kindness, respect and spirit!

Each day offers Freedom Campers a varied schedule including a wide array of traditional camp activities like archery, crafts, rock climbing, canoeing, water games, soccer, softball, volleyball, theatrical arts, team building, and swimming!*

Typical Day

Days at LINX Camps are typically spent laughing and learning with friends! Freedom Camp includes two pre-scheduled traditional camp activity periods, a lunch period, a swim period (including Red Cross Certified swim instruction)*, and two self-selected afternoon Freedom Periods.

Freedom Campers also have the opportunity to interact with non-freedom camp friends during opening and closing ceremonies, as well as lunch. Our popular camp-wide activities help us to build a sense of camp community.

Swim available during the weeks we are at Dana Hall. For weeks we are at the Connors Center, we substitute swim with water games!

Freedom Choices

Each day at lunch, Freedom Campers are given the opportunity to choose afternoon activities. Children are empowered to make their own choices with the guidance of their counselors. Some days they will make new friends while enjoying favorite activities, and other days they might explore new activities with old friends!

Being a Freedom Camper at LINX Camps is the perfect choice for children who wish to experience all that camp has to offer while also having the opportunity to dive deeper into programs and activities that peak their interest. Many of our Freedom Camp choices include activities available to our Specialty and Sports Campers.

Mix It Up!

Many campers choose Freedom Camp for multiple sessions. Some compliment that with a week in a LINX Specialty Camp or LINX Sports Camp. For a more intense camp experience with a performing arts focus, try LX Performing Arts Camps. For a more intense camp experience with a sports focus, try LX Sports Camps.

[The LINX swim instructor was] the first instructor [my son] has made ANY real progress with in swimming. He has always been nervous around water. We have had him in swimming lessons for years, [...but] this is the first time he's actually enjoyed swimming and has shown any progress or any real desire to gain skills. I don't know what you did, but we really appreciate it!

I wanted to take a few minutes out of my busy day [...to] relay my gratitude for running a fantastic - 5 star camp! After attending the Linx Camp picnic last night, I got to see first hand the tight family bond among the entire staff and campers! I am already looking forward to next years picnic! It was refreshing to see a camp operate in this fashion, and it also showed me there is a tremendous amount of fun occurring and that everyone feels welcome! The communications via e-mail have also been outstanding. I received end of the week updates on my son's swimming and the group's activities. The communications were short, informative, to the point and easy to follow. Thank you very much for providing the best camp experience for my son this summer! This was his first summer and he was a little apprehensive because he was at another camp for the past three summers. Your master motivator (Chris Dumais) and other counselors were mentioned frequently by my son, and seeing it first hand last night I understood why! I feel Chris could be the next Tony Robbins or even better! I also relayed my concerns about something to Linx Camps via e-mail and I was immediately contacted on my cell phone by [a supervisor] and my issue was addressed. Thank you for the sense of urgency and contacting me so quickly! I hope other camps will use your model as you have created and cultivated something truly special!

I just want to let you know how impressed by Linx I have been this summer. My daughter absolutely loves it there, gets frustrated if I have to pick her up early and wishes the weekends away so it can be a camp day again. Every single staff member I have come in contact with is super friendly and very helpful and the energy there is just awesome. A well oiled machine and an easy place to feel comfortable sending my kid!
