Sanibel Sea School is excited to announce that they will offer a full lineup of summer camps beginning June 7.
“We are so excited to get back to a more normal summer,” said Director Nicole Finnicum. “With the cancellation of summer camps last year, we are ready to have campers back on campus, surfing, snorkeling, and making memories in the ocean.”
In accordance with CDC and American Camp Association guidelines, summer activities will be modified to take necessary precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19, including smaller group sizes at both locations and masking indoors.
General registration for Sanibel Sea School summer camp will open at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 13.
Sanibel Sea School staff have been working to rollover those registrations from last year’s canceled camp into this year’s sessions. “We are allowing our 2020 participants to apply their tuition to this year’s camp and are offering them priority registration,” said Finnicum. “Spaces will be limited this year with our rollovers and smaller camp sizes, so we are encouraging people to be ready for registration right at 10 a.m.”
This year, a variety of biology-themed camps are available for children and teens ages 4-18 at two different locations – Sanibel Sea School’s Flagship campus on the east end of Sanibel, as well as at a brand-new location, the Bailey Homestead.
Each week will have a different theme, some highlights include sharks, coconuts, manatees, and Calusa. These Island Skills camp weeks are for kids ages 6-13 and include activities such as surfing, seining for fish, snorkeling, and learning basic waterfolk skills. For kids ages 4-6 years old, the little ones will learn about mullet, sticky anemones and seahorses, all while getting comfortable in the ocean.
