My two children (ages 4 and 6) just finished a week at Sanibel Sea School (Sx3) and had the time of their lives! They explored on the beaches every morning, went on scavenger hunts, had picnic lunches and a cookout, went snorkeling, did an ocean art project, played fun games and went surfing everyday! (I must admit that I was quite jealous every morning after drop off though.)
The counselors were incredible; warm and welcoming. My children took to them immediately and I appreciated their friendliness as it eased the kids into feeling comfortable and trying new things. They were extremely encouraging with lots of high-fives and always knew the kids by name.
They focused on one particular sea creature during the week and when asked what all she was learning, my six year old told us "nothing" yet throughout the week spatted off all kinds of new sea facts and information. I told her that I thought she DID learn a lot and she said "That wasn't learning. That was just fun!" I love that she didn't even realize that she was getting an ocean education!
I was concerned at first about having my 4 year old in the ocean but quickly got over it when I saw the counselor/child ratio. He actually teared up on the last day because he didn't want it to be over.
In all, I would highly recommend Sanibel Sea School. We plan on returning as often as we can!
