Sanibel Sea School Summer Camp Registration Opening Soon

February 3, 2021
Sanibel Sea School is excited to announce a full lineup of summer camps beginning on June 7. 
“We are thrilled to get back to a more normal summer,” said Director Nicole Finnicum. “With the cancellation of summer camps last year, we are ready to have campers back on campus, surfing, snorkeling, and making memories in the ocean.”
In accordance with CDC and American Camp Association guidelines, summer activities will be modified to take necessary precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19, including smaller group sizes at both locations and masking indoors. 
General registration for Sanibel Sea School summer camp will open Saturday, Feb. 13 at 10 a.m. Space will be limited so it’s important to register when it opens.
The Sanibel Sea School staff has been working to rollover registrations from last year’s canceled camp into this year’s sessions. “We are allowing our 2020 participants to apply their tuition to this year’s camp and offering them priority registration,” said Finnicum. “Space will be limited this year with our rollovers and smaller camp sizes.”
This year, a variety of biology-themed camps are available for children and teens ages 4-18 at two different locations – Sanibel Sea School’s flagship campus on the east end of Sanibel, as well as at a brand-new location, The Bailey Homestead. 
Each week will have a different theme, with highlights such as sharks, coconuts, manatees, and Calusa. Island Skills for participants ages 6-13 will include activities such as surfing, seining for fish, snorkeling, and learning basic waterfolk skills. The little ones, ages 4-6 years old, will learn about mullet, anemones, and seahorses while getting comfortable in the ocean.
