Jr. Explorers | 3 Years Old - 1st Grade

Jr. 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 they need to succeed within the group and have a truly memorable camp experience. Campers are always divided into age appropriate groups.

Details

Days at LINX Junior Camps are spent laughing and learning with friends! Jr. Explorers Camp includes four traditional camp activity periods, swimming, and a lunch period.

Potential activity periods are:

  • Arts & Crafts

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

Explorers Camp is not offered the first week of camp (week of June 20th). Please check out Discoverers Camp which is offered that week and runs all summer without a swim period.

Potty Training Policy

All campers must be fully potty trained prior to the start of their camp experience at LINX Camps. 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.

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."

The communication portal (Family Dashboard) really sets the experience apart from other camps, when you're trying to navigate each week of the summer as a parent. And the pure joy that all the counselors and staff have for their jobs is amazing!"
