Registration for the Sanibel Sea School summer camps will open on Feb. 15 at 10 a.m.

A variety of biology-themed camps are available for youth ages 4-19 at three locations – the Flagship campus on Sanibel, the Sundial Beach Resort and Spa, and the Canterbury School in Fort Myers.

Each week has a different theme and some highlights include sharks, coconuts, manatees and the Calusa. Island Skills camp weeks are for ages 6-13 and include activities such as surfing, seining for fish, snorkeling and learning basic waterfolk skills. For ages 4-6, the participants will learn about mullet, sticky anemones and gopher tortoises – all while getting comfortable in the ocean.

This year, the Sanibel Sea School has expanded its teen offerings to create a sequential coral reef curriculum to target all levels of experience. There are two Coral Reef Weeks for ages 11-12 and ages 13-14, an expedition to the Andros Island in the Bahamas for ages 15-16, and a capstone expedition to Belize for ages 17-19. Ages 13-17 can also participate in the Counselor in Training Program to learn leadership skills and gain volunteer hours in a fun and rewarding setting.

To register, visit sanibelseaschool.org or call 239-472-8585 for more information.

Part of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation family, the Sanibel Sea School’s mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time.
