LINX Camps offers a superior swim program, with lessons taught by staff who have received LINX Camps swim training and under the watchful eye of lifeguards who are all Red Cross certified. Our swim staff 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.
See the swimming and water safety skills chart we use to guide our lessons and advance camper swimming ability.
Please note that our swim program is not offered the first week of camp (week of June 20th). In lieu of swim, the campers will participate in outdoor water games, if weather permits.
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.
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.
