Welcome to Community Camps!
Sanibel Sea School offers multiple free Community Camps throughout the academic year on select school holidays. Like our week-long camp programs, Community Camp Days are open to campers ages 6-13 and Counselors In Training (CITs) ages 13-17.
Each day has a theme, and games and activities relate to the topic. Themes dates, and registration details are posted on our website, social media, and email. Sign up here to receive updates!
Community Camps are scheduled on January 15th and March 15th for the 2024-25 academic year.
Space is limited, and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure that all interested families have a chance to participate, we will limit registration to two free program days per academic year per child.
Community Camp is free! Registration opens at 10:00 AM on February 26.
Celebration of the Sea March 15, 2024
Campers: 9 AM - 4 PM
CITs: 8 AM - 5 PM
The ocean is taking center stage in our free day camp filled with fun, education, and adventure! Join us for a splashing good time as we celebrate the beauty and importance of our oceans. From surfing to interactive art projects, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Immerse yourself in marine life as we dip beneath the surface to snorkel in seagrass and discover the secrets that hide between the blades. There will be games galore and a whole lot of salty fun. So come on down to our sandy bucket school and join us for the ultimate celebration of the sea!
This program is designed to teach our older campers the skills needed for leadership and future employment. CITs are a vital link between our younger campers and the counselors in our programs. We teach our CITs how to be leaders and positive role models to those around them through theory and practice. We assign duties and create and maintain performance expectations for these young 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.
