The Sanibel Sea School hosted two weeks of camp to coincide with students’ winter break.

The themes were celestial, Powered by the Moon Week and Powered by the Sun Week, and explored how the moon and sun are intricately connected to the oceans.

During Powered by the Moon Week, campers learned about the phases of the moon, and how the moon impacts tides. They also played Moon Phase Twister, created moon-inspired art and talked about creatures who depend on the moon in various ways – like sea turtles.

Powered by the Sun Week campers made solar s’mores, learned how sunlight supports the food web and went seining in the seagrass at Bunche Beach.

Both weeks also included plenty of time for surfing, macram tying, and spending time with friends.
