Cast Netting for Kids

Open to students in grades K-8.

In October 2016, Sanibel Sea School, the Sanibel School, and the Sanibel Recreation Center are teaming up to offer cast netting lessons for elementary and middle school students. This is an after school program designed for kids to learn how to use cast nets for the first time, or to hone their existing skills. Cast netting techniques and sight fishing for forage fish will be covered, and we will visit different locations to test out our throwing abilities. Students will build up their skills over this series in time to compete in the 23rd Annual Esperanza Woodring Memorial Cast Net Rodeo, to be held on November 5th. 

Sanibel Sea School will pick up students from the Sanibel Recreation Center at 3:30 PM and parent pick up will be at Sanibel Sea School at 5:30 PM. Parents are also welcome to drop off their students at Sanibel Sea School. 

Dates: Tuesdays in October from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM (10/4, 10/11, 10/18, 10/25)

Price: $20 per day or $75 for the 4 class series

After School Surfing

Open to students in grades 1-5.

Every Florida kid should know how to surf! Sanibel Sea School is teaming up with the Sanibel Recreation Center and The Sanibel School to offer after school surfing lessons this November. During each session, we will teach proper paddling techniques, how to turn the surfboard, how to “pop up” (move from paddling to standing position), and how to catch a wave. After each session, students will go home with new skills and a greater appreciation for the ocean.

Ocean Art

Open to students in grades 1-5.

At Sanibel Sea School, we love to make art using natural materials. This December, we’ll get creative and use everything from shells to coconuts to make some beautiful art pieces to take home or to give as gifts this holiday season. We will supply all of the art supplies needed for the class and our marine science educators will guide the students through a new ocean-inspired art project each week. Join us just once or for the entire series!
