Sea Stars is a three-day buddy camp designed for students with special needs and their guardians to explore the Gulf of Mexico. This weekend experience is specially designed for students ages 9 to 18 with developmental disabilities. Paired with their guardian, campers will explore the wonderful marine world in a hands-on and fun atmosphere.

Participants explore Dauphin Island’s many marine habitats, including Mobile Bay, the salt marsh, and the beach by boat, bus, and walking. An 8-person team of experienced educators and counselors (a 2:1 camper to staff ratio) conducts the Sea Stars program. The group may be outside for up to two hours at a time, being moderate, physically active. We provide plenty of shade and drinking water for all activities and take time to rest, enjoy the outdoors, and make friends during our explorations.

Sea Stars has traditionally been offered every other year. Our last program took place in September 2021. We thank our 2021 sponsors - Rotary Children’s Foundation, Austal, and the Krewe of Kindness. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact our office.
