Winter campers at Sanibel Sea School enjoy days full of fun and learning at the beach. 

Registration for Sanibel Sea School’s ocean-themed winter camp programs is now open, and campers can sign up via the organization’s website. Two weeks of camp will be offered for children ages 6-13, beginning Tuesday, December 26th and Monday, January 1st. There will also be an opportunity for teenagers to participate as Counselors in Training.

In celebration of winter and colder climates, the first week’s theme will be Penguins, and the second week will be all about Polar Bears. All activities and games will relate to these creatures and their behavior, and will include surfing, seining, snorkeling, relay races, and crafts. “Of course we will also add our annual traditions to the camp schedule,” said Director of Education Nicole Finnicum. “We always write ocean carols and go canal caroling, we drink hot chocolate to warm up after surfing, and we hold our Give Your Worries to the Sea ceremony to begin the new year,” she added.

Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean, one person at a time. Scholarships are available upon request. To learn more and register, click here or call (239) 472-8585.
