LINX Science Camp

Overview

LINX Science Exploration leading to an EPIC Summer!!!

LINX Science Camp now offers a full curriculum framework that will engage campers in activities based off the 2017 Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Standards. These weekly activities will prepare each camper individually for their upcoming school year while allowing campers to discover the exciting world of science in a fun, messy way!

LINX science campers are led on a science adventure as they take a hands-on look at solar energy, aerodynamics, flight, chemistry, physics and much more. This science program is designed to inspire creativity, spark curiosity, and challenge young scientific minds.


Weekly focus on everything Science!

Each week campers use the scientific method to uncover the mysteries of the science-infused world around them, and beyond! The science program is designed with a variety of hands-on experiments and demonstrations in the following topics:

  • Physics/Engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Biology/Earth Science
  • Electronics
  • Outer Space/Flight

Mix it up!

Many campers choose Science Camp for multiple sessions to improve technique. Some compliment that with a week in another LINX Specialty Camp or a week in one of our LX Performing Arts Camps or LX Sports Camps. You may also add a LINX General Camp or LINX Sports Camp to experience all LINX Camps has to offer!

Who Done It Camp
We are wrapping up the first week of camp and if [my son] has anything to say about it, we are now lifers! What a great organization and we feel truly blessed to have it so close to home.

It has truly been a wonderful summer for both [of our children]. Of all the camps we've been to the past 7 years, the difference we notice is the LINX staff. Their attentiveness, exuberance and feedback really makes a lasting impression. [We] can't thank you and all the wonderful LINX staff enough.

   - J.R., Needham, MA

You're the only camp that provides such nice and consistent communication to the parents so thank you! [My daughter] is having such a great time and all of you have been so wonderful! She's looking forward to spending the rest of her summer there.
