(August 07, 2019) --

Discovery Hall Programs at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab plans to host the Sea Stars Camp once again in the fall. The camp is scheduled for September 20-22.  

Rotary Club of Mobile and Krewe of Kindness donated in support of the 2019 Sea Stars Camp.  Those donations reduced the cost of the camp for participants to $100 a pair. 

Sea Stars Camp 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 and its habitats. The highlight of the weekend is sure to be the 2-hour cruise in Mobile Bay. 

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 moderately, 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.
