With an astounding number of top-notch offerings and a fast-growing enrollment, it’s easy to see why LINX is a 10-time Family Favorite winner, not only this year but for two years in a row! “We create an emotionally safe space for boys and girls to thrive,” says Josh Schiering, vice president at LINX and executive director of LINX Camps. “LINX is a vehicle for kids to try new things and take risks without a fear of failing or bullying.” Schiering says the LINX recipe for success is its staff. “If two people make the same recipe, they don’t tend to get the same results,” he explains. “It’s because one may use better ingredients. Our ingredients are our staff. We work hard to hire experts in their fields and train them to be even better.” Our readers obviously think this effort shows!
