Spring Break with beach education

Just because it’s Spring Break does not mean the learning has to end.

Here on Navarre Beach we pride ourselves on a family friendly spring break, but we offer much more than a beautiful (and PG rated) beach to soak up the sun on.

Infuse your child’s Spring vacation with a healthy dose of marine education thanks to the Navarre Beach Marine Science Station’s Spring Camp Schedule. The NBMSS is an amazing location in the Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary.

This beach front learning center offers children a hands-on, feet-wet approach to conservation education through experiencing marine life up close with state certified teachers and trained volunteers.

This year the station has expanded their summer camps to offer spring break mini camps as well. Here’s what’s available:

 

Seuss Science by the Sea

“From one fish two fish, to Clam I am, Seussical sea creatures are everywhere. Learn all about animal diversity in the sea while investigating the marine science themes found in some of Dr. Seuss’s most beloved stories.  Each day begins with a special read-aloud Dr. Seuss book followed by a beach investigation (getting wet) and Dr. Seuss themed activities.  Oh, the places you will go with Seuss Science by the Sea!”
