Volun-Teen Days

Welcome to Volun-Teen Days!

Hello, Ocean Tribe!

As many of you know, we are still recovering from Hurricane Ian, which devastated our sandy bucket school just six months ago. Although we have made significant progress since then, there is still a long way to go, and we could use your help!

We lost almost all of our program supplies and field gear, making preparing for the busy summer camp season even more daunting than usual. We are seeking the help of our dedicated Sanibel Sea School family for a few days after school to get the job done. There will be painting, prepping, building, loading, and lots of laughter along the way.

Our FREE Volun-Teen Days will be held on May 31, June 1, 5, and 6 after school from 2 to 5 p.m. Please read this page carefully to learn more and register below.

When & Where:

Dates: May 31, June1, 5, and 6

Times: 2 to 5 p.m. EST. This is a relaxed time slot; feel free to come and go anytime in between.

Ages: Targeted towards ages 13 and up but open to middle school students seeking volunteer hours as well.

Price: Free; we will sign off on volunteer hours for these events or write a letter if your school requires it.
