For June, Sanibel Sea School is going virtual. To ensure the safety of their staff, campers, and the island community, there will be no in-person camps in June.
Virtual options will include four, week-long “Island Skillz” camps with themes featuring Sea Turtles, Dolphins, Manatees, and Sharks. Camp will be offered for campers age 6-13, Monday through Friday from 10 to 11 a.m.
Sanibel Sea School educators will offer camp activities over Zoom – games, scavenger hunts, drawing tutorials, and marine science education. “We’re excited to still be able to engage with our campers through Zoom in a meaningful way,” said Education Programs Manager Shannon Stainken. “Our Island Skillz camps will have the same fun and learning as our regular camps and will be a great space for summer camaraderie for our campers.”
Additionally, for those families that cannot commit to a week-long option, Sanibel Sea School will be offering a series of sessions that campers can register for, ala carte, called “Live, but Distant”.
Live, but Distant will be offered twice daily during the week, and will each be a one-hour session. Sessions can be purchased with a one-month subscription for $150 with unlimited access. Sessions will include, knot tying, sea creature themed drawing, macramé and shell jewelry tutorials, kitchen chemistry and more.
Sanibel Sea School will be making an announcement by June 15th whether or not they will offer in-person summer camps for July and August.
