Young children can explore the ocean during Sanibel Sea School's Sea Squirts Day Camps.

Beginning in February, Sanibel Sea School will add seasonal classes for 4-6 year olds to the organization’s schedule of field-based marine science learning opportunities. The program will be called Sea Squirts, and will be offered through mid-April.

Like the nonprofit’s classes for 6-13 year olds, Sea Squirts Day Camps will cover a different topic each week, and activities will include crabbing, rock flipping, mud walks, and more. Led by enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructors, each class will be two hours long. "The idea is to help our youngest students feel comfortable in the water, so they will be ready for things like snorkeling and surfing by the time they turn six and can sign up for our other programs," said Nicole Finnicum, Sanibel Sea School's Director of Education.

Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more about Sea Squirts and register, please visit sanibelseaschool.org or call (239) 472-8585.
