Hey there, ocean lovers! If you missed out on the recent Community Camp at Sanibel Sea School, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with all the highlights from our “Celebration of the Sea” Community Camp on March 15!

When Lee County Public Schools are closed for select holidays, Sanibel Sea School opens its doors to children ages 6 – 17, ensuring that the spirit of exploration lives on even during school breaks. Our Community Camps aren’t just about having a blast – they’re also an opportunity for young explorers to deepen their understanding of the marine world. Through hands-on activities and expert guidance from our passionate team, campers gained valuable insights into the importance of ocean conservation and stewardship.

“Our sandy shores were buzzing with excitement as we hosted a full-day celebration dedicated to our beloved oceans. The kids were extremely engaged and happy to learn all about the sea that they love so dearly!”

– Annie Clinton, Marine Science Educator

Campers of all ages were treated to a blend of fun, education, and salty escapades. Whether you’re a seasoned snorkeler or a novice surfer, there was something for everyone to enjoy. We delved beneath the waves to explore the secrets hidden within the seagrass and even got our creative juices flowing with ocean art projects.

But the fun didn’t stop there! From building sandcastles to engaging in friendly beach games, there was never a dull moment at our sandy bucket school. Laughter filled the air as friendships were forged and memories made, all against the breathtaking backdrop of Sanibel’s stunning coastline.

One of the highlights of the day was the chance to crack open a coconut – talk about a tropical treat!

More About Community Camp

In early 2018, we started to offer Free Community Camp Days for local students on select school holidays. This program is a part of our Chance to Sea Program. Sanibel Sea School is dedicated to providing programming to children who wouldn’t otherwise experience the ocean. A Chance to Sea connects the deserving children of Southwest Florida to our region’s natural environment.

There’s always something new to discover at Sanibel Sea School. Keep an eye out for our upcoming events and join us as we continue to celebrate the wonders of the sea! Sign up here to receive updates! Community Camp dates for the next academic year will be announced in August 2024.
