Swimming at LINX Camps

LINX Camps offers a superior swim program led by Red Cross certified lifeguards. Our Swim Leadership Team is selected for their mastery of each age and skill level, and to ensure quality instruction with individualized attention. Individual skill assessments are conducted throughout each week to help campers advance.

Our Aquatics Center

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.

We use LINX safety rated submerged docks for our youngest campers so they can stand during instruction!

Boys and girls locker rooms are available for changing and storing camper belongings.

Lesson Placement

For campers getting lessons, parents complete an online assessment form to establish initial placements of campers in their swim groups. Our team of experts then monitors each campers' skill progression and potentially places them in more advanced groups over time.

Details about Junior Campers

While our staff are 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 learn.
Practicing and teaching water safety is the top priority at all times.
We maintain one swim instructor for every five swimmers.

There was one day that my son didn't want to swim. At any other camp, I would have no idea that happened. LINX Camps called to let me know!" There was one day that my son didn't want to swim. At any other camp, I would have no idea that happened. LINX Camps called to let me know!" A.G., Natick

The LINX Camps' 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... Show full review The LINX Camps' 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!" P.O., Dedham
