Summer Camp at Canterbury School

SUMMER CAMP AT canterbury school – Check back with us for 2021 dates.

We partner with Canterbury School to offer ocean-themed, field-based summer camps in Fort Myers. Canterbury School will be our home base, and Sanibel Sea School and Canterbury educators and counselors will transport campers to beach locations each day to experience the ocean. In this hybrid camp, we’ll spend time on the bay and in the Gulf, and visit locations on the mainland and our local barrier islands. We’ll learn a little marine biology in the best way possible – hands on! We’ll have the opportunity to observe some of our favorite sea creatures in Canterbury’s marine lab, all while creating lasting friendships and memories around the ocean. 

Each week of camp has its own theme and activities, and there are things we do every day in camp. We surf each day, and our famous Surf Paddling Competition is held each Friday. In Sanibel Sea School style, every day includes surfing, friendship, macramé, and team bonding. Then there’s always artwork, journaling, beach time, seining and snorkeling. Our “Milk and Cookies Slideshow” takes place every Friday at 3:30 PM. Bring some delicious baked goodies and join us to experience your child’s week of camp. 

We keep the size of our camps small and the meaningful experiences big. Typically, the camper to teacher ratio is less than 12 to 1.

Our summer programs at Canterbury School are open to the public.

Counselor in Training (CIT) Program

Offered Weekly

$210, Ages 13-17

The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program is for kids 13-17 who would like to reach their leadership potential.

This program is designed to teach older campers the skills of leadership for their future success. CITs are a vital link between our younger campers and the counselors in our programs. Through theory and practice, we teach our CITs how to be leaders and positive role models to those around them. We assign duties and create and maintain performance expectations for these young adult leaders. We treat them with gentleness, love and respect, but show them how to carry out the responsibilities they are now capable of and how to use their abilities to become excellent role models. On any given day, it is hard to tell who is having more fun, the campers or the CITs.

CITs arrive one hour prior to the start of camp and leave one hour after the camp day ends. CITs arrive at 7:30 AM on Mondays.


We’re so excited for your kids to join us for the best summer ever! Registration for our camp programs at Canterbury School are processed through Canterbury’s system. For assistance, please contact Rita Salgado, Director of Summer Programs at (239) 481-4323, ext. 208.
