Registration for Sanibel Sea School’s summer camp programs is open now, and space is still available for a number of weeks. Camp runs from June 3 to Aug. 23 at three locations – Sanibel Sea School’s Flagship Campus, Sundial Beach Resort, and Canterbury School in Fort Myers. There are programs offered for campers ages 4 to 18.

The nonprofit’s Island Skills Camp for 6 to 13-year olds provides a chance for participants to learn about marine biology in a fun setting, while also practicing waterman skills, making art, and spending time with friends. “Favorite camp activities include surfing, snorkeling, crafts, and any sort of dissection,” said Camp Coordinator Shannon Stainken. “We have a surfing competition at the end of each week, which campers always look forward to, and we also take so many great field trips to explore the ocean,” she added.

Select weeks will be offered for 4 to 6 year olds, during which they will have a chance to get comfortable in the water. For teens, there are coral reef expeditions to the Florida Keys and Belize planned, as well as a variety of paddleboard, canoe, and boat-based overnight trips.
