Born out of the enjoyment and safety our nation experienced by being outside during the pandemic, New England Outdoor Camp — NEOC, for short, and pronounced nē-äk — sparks and stokes the excitement, discovery, and fun children have while outside! Additionally, it is a throw-back to vintage summer camps where children explored and played outside at an easy pace and without any technology at all.
NEOC is a new camp concept from The LINX Companies, the parent company of LINX Camps.
Joe Kahn, a parent of two young children, had a vision for a company that would enable children to learn new things while having fun. In 2005, after countless interviews and discussions with parents, educators, business people, and more, the LINX Companies was launched to provide premier enrichment classes for the MetroWest community.
From the very start, LINX set itself apart by offering a unique combination of nurturing and growing the confidence and interests of children in a fun-based environment and being able to rapidly respond and innovate. By adding a team of outstanding people, who love working with children, and staying strongly focused on premier programming, the company grew year after year. LINX Theater launched in 2006, LINX Dance Studio in 2008, and LINX Camps in 2009. In 2021, LINX embraced a new strategic vision, focused on premier summer day camps.
Since its founding, the year-round company office has been located at 141 Linden Street in Wellesley, MA, giving them deep roots in the local community. LINX takes great pride in the premier camp programs they offer and the support they provide to local PTAs, school performing arts programs, and family-focused groups.
