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.
Thank you to our 2021 sponsors, Rotary Children’s Foundation, Austal, and Krewe of Kindness. Learn more about these organizations below, and how you can help continue the support.
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.
