Sanibel Sea School offering virtual camps in June

By Staff | May 20, 2020

Starting June 1, the Sanibel Sea School will offer a series of virtual Island Skills camps that include both week-long options and la carte sessions as part of the organization’s phase I reopening.

As a science-based organization, it is following the CDC’s guidelines on gatherings and regional infection rates. Adhering to the recommendations and exercising an abundance of caution, it will not be holding its regular in-person camps.

“For the safety of our staff, our camp families, and our island community, we have decided to hold virtual camp sessions, in place of our regular in-person Island Skills camps,” Operations Manager Nicole Finnicum said. “Safety is our number one priority for all of our programs, so we feel that it is necessary to remain distanced until we absolutely know it is safe to engage in person.”

The staff is planning a half-day in-person camp for the second half of summer, but they will wait to commit to the phase II reopening and make an announcement on their plans later in mid-June.

For families that are registered for summer camp, they have three options:

– Roll tuition over to 2021 and guarantee a spot next summer with no tuition increase.

– Apply tuition to virtual offerings with options to donate a portion of the remaining balance or receive a refund.

– A full refund of tuition.
