Explorers | 3 Years - 1st Grade

Explorers Campers enjoy a full day of camp from 9am - 4pm daily. Our youngest campers travel with their Head Counselors and assigned teams of assistants throughout the day. Camper groups move together from activity to activity to help foster safety and continuity. Due to our carefully maintained 5-to-1 camper to counselor ratio, each camper receives the individual attention he/she needs to succeed within the group and have a truly memorable camp experience. Campers are always divided into age appropriate groups.

Details

Days at LINX Camps are spent laughing and learning with friends! Explorers Camp includes traditional camp activity periods, a period of water games, and a lunch period. Explorers have the opportunity to interact with other camp friends during junior opening and closing ceremonies and lunch.

Sessions are packed with arts and crafts, sports, games, making friends, and more. Every day is unique as campers rotate from activity to activity to develop skills through non-competitive play. Choose multiple sessions to help with continuity and social development.

Swim

All lifeguards are Red Cross certified. Swim lessons are taught by staff who have received LINX Camps swim training.

Potty Training Policy

All campers must be fully potty trained prior to the start of their camp experience at LINX. Campers must be able to use the bathroom on their own without wiping assistance as counselors are not permitted to touch campers in private areas. Campers who rely on swim diapers are not considered fully potty trained and cannot attend camp. We understand that all children develop their potty training at their own pace. If a camper is not ready for camp this year, we will apply 100% of their tuition paid towards camp for the following year in the hopes that they will be ready next year.

He talks non-stop about his day in Explorers as soon as he gets in the car — it's nice not having to prod information out of him! He is thrilled to go back this coming week and participate in games, arts & crafts, swim time, and of course, see who gets the shaving cream squasher on Friday! Thanks again for making him feel so comfortable and making his first time at summer camp such a fun-filled experience!" T.M., Natick
We have sent our children to LINX Camps since they were 5 years old. What I appreciate the most is the camp's emphasis on emotional growth and well being."

My son can be shy initially, but he loved LINX Camps from the first day. Definitely keep up the individual attention you provide each camper as well as the welcoming nature of the staff and program. It makes a huge difference for kids when it is their initial experience with camp." My son can be shy initially, but he loved LINX Camps from the first day.
