What's Included

The Gulf of Mexico holds many secrets below the shallow, sand dollar-laden seafloor we are familiar with. We will uncover the mysteries of the deep Gulf and learn all about the super salty underwater lakes, deep-sea canyons, and cold seeps. We’ll investigate crazy anglerfish that lurk in the depths, along with massive tube dwelling worms, and even bacteria that make their own food without sunlight! It may not snow on Sanibel, but it does in the Gulf of Mexico – we’ll celebrate marine snow and chilly waters because there’s no better time than winter to learn about the cold, deep, dark Gulf. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Sanibel Sea School camp without macramé or riding our surfboards on the Gulf waves, along with our favorite holiday ocean caroling. For campers ages 6-13. Important Schedule Information: 12/21/15: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM 12/22/15: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM 12/23/15: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM 12/24/15: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM 12/25/15: No Camp (Christmas Day)
