Registration for Sanibel Sea School summer camp will open at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 15. A variety of biology-themed camps are available for children and teens ages 4 to 19 at three different locations – the Flagship campus on the east end of Sanibel, the Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, and at Canterbury School, Fort Myers.
Each week has a different theme, some highlights include sharks, coconuts, manatees, and Calusa. These Island Skills camp weeks are for kids ages 6 to 13 and include activities such as surfing, seining for fish, snorkeling, and learning basic waterfolk skills. For kids ages 4 to 6 years old, the little ones will learn about mullet, sticky anemones and gopher tortoises, all while getting comfortable in the ocean.
This year, Sanibel Sea School has expanded its teen offerings to create a sequential coral reef curriculum to target all levels of experience. There are two Coral Reef Weeks for teens ages 11 to 12 and 13 to 14, an expedition to Andros Island Bahamas for teens ages 15 to 16, and a capstone expedition to Belize for ages 17 to 19. Teens ages 13 to 17 can also participate in the Counselor in Training Program to learn leadership skills and gain volunteer hours in a fun and rewarding setting.
