The link to offer fun options for spring break camps


This will be the first spring break the link in Nocatee will be open and they have a list of options for local students to take part in while they are out of school.

Three spring break camp options are being offered to choose from. There will be a camp focusing on Olympic-style fencing and another pertaining to CodeSpark coding and video game design.

However, there will also be one that will include a buffet of activities, including Esports, LEGO robotics, a variation of indoor tennis and arts and crafts.

“We wanted to offer one camp that presents a lot of avenues to explore, that way you’re not doing the same thing every day,” said Jeff Tawney, director of operations at the link.

Professional instructors will be overseeing the camps’ activities. Esports and coding are two areas that are newer to the link.

The camps will be held March 14-18, which coincides with the week that St. Johns County Public Schools has scheduled for this year’s spring break holiday. Children ages 6 and older are welcome to attend.

The tennis portion will be played indoors using Nerf balls, while the arts and crafts will be taught in conjunction with the Sapna Academy on site, which seeks to teach children through play.

Each of the activities offered at the camps are offered as a larger extent through clubs or afterschool programs at the link.

The link opened July 14, 2021, and one of the facility’s goals was to become a center for the entire community to share in.

Events like the spring break camps only help establish its place within the framework of the community.

“There’s been a buzz,” Tawney said. “Especially for folks who live in Nocatee, kids have started just riding their bikes or golf carts here to take part in the things we’re doing.”

The Olympic-style fencing camp is $150, while the coding and video game design camp and the camp offering a variety are both $299.

The variety camp will last from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the fencing and coding camps will both last a half-day from 9 a.m. to noon. Breaks and lunch will be provided at all the camps.

Registration is required to take part in either of the camps. Booking a spot can be done by going to or by using the app.
