Registration for the Sanibel Sea School’s summer camp programs is open, and space is still available for a number of weeks. There are programs offered for campers ages 4-18.

Camp runs from June 3 to Aug. 23 at three locations – Sanibel Sea School’s Flagship Campus, Sundial Beach Resort and Canterbury School in Fort Myers.

The nonprofit’s Island Skills Camp for ages 6-13 provides a chance for participants to learn about marine biology in a fun setting, while also practicing waterman skills, making art, and spending time with friends.

“Favorite camp activities include surfing, snorkeling, crafts, and any sort of dissection,” Camp Coordinator Shannon Stainken said. “We have a surfing competition at the end of each week, which campers always look forward to, and we also take so many great field trips to explore the ocean.”

Select weeks will be offered for ages 4-6, during which they will have a chance to get comfortable in the water. For teens, there are coral reef expeditions to the Florida Keys and Belize planned, as well as a variety of paddleboard, canoe, and boat-based overnight trips.

Scholarships are available upon request.
