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 will 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) will conduct the Sea Stars program for the weekend. The group will be outside for up to two hours at a time, being moderate, physically active. Discovery Hall Programs will provide plenty of shade and drinking water for all activities, and take time to rest and enjoy the scenery during the explorations.
