Maker Masters | 4th - 5th Grades

This hands-on, project-based learning camp challenges kids to solve complex STEM problems using creativity, critical thinking, and analytical skills. The large scale of the projects mean campers spend most of their time working in groups and developing the interpersonal skills that will make them amazing friends and valued teammates. Sample projects include: soap boat racers, volcanoes, parachutes, skee ball, and automatic bubble machines.
Our investigations and experiments may repeat from week-to-week. To avoid your camper exploring concepts for which they already anticipate the outcome, we recommend that a camper only spend one week each summer in this camp.

Details

I love everything about LINX Camps. My son has struggled both socially and to meet expectations at some other day camps. He is well supported and happy at LINX Camps. Thank you!!!"

I was very impressed with the whole LINX Camps experience. The counselors were friendly and provided a fun and safe experience for my son. LINX Lunch Box was well-received by my son. I loved Scrapbook and online family management system. I was very impressed with the whole LINX Camps experience. The counselors were friendly and provided a fun and safe experience for my son.

I spent the summer wondering why I never sent my kids to LINX Camps before this year. If I had known how easy you guys make it (for parents) and how much my kids would like it, I definitely would have."

They're a delight and having them as guests here in Wellesley seems to really help open up our girls' eyes to different cultures. Just a bunch of winners, all of them. In fact, once again, the whole experience has been so positive — from communications to the ease of taking care of anything on the LINX Camps website. This is why we always send and will continue to send our daughters to LINX Camps." G.M., Wellesley

I loved knowing they were having the best time, and felt like they were in wonderful hands. My kids loved all the camps songs they learned and the water games! I do appreciate the organization at the front of camp: the seamless camp drop-offs, any communication was very easy. I felt a lot of comfort knowing I could get in contact very easily. My kids were entertained and the hours of operation were just what our family needed and wanted. My kids loved all of the food offerings, as well! We were just thrilled with our experience and can't wait to return!" MK.B., Dover
We had an amazing experience at LINX Camps and wish we'd found you sooner. Before LINX Camps all my son did was play video games. LINX Camps changed his life and has made a huge difference in his disposition. Thank you for making such a positive impact on my son when he desperately needed it."
