student summer programs
We offer four Day Programs (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.), each with a specific focus.
Students can fully customize their Summer and choose to sign-up for one, two, or all four!
If students sign-up for all four they will become an official "Guardian of the Sea!"
Each Day Program incorporates our three pillars of influence:
Experience the Salish Sea's ecosystem on a power vessel. Explore local waterways in search of the Day Program's specific marine life. Land at local islands for lunch, hikes, and more.
Participate as citizen scientists to collect data that supports ongoing monitoring of the Salish Sea's health.
Create a personal, take-home action plan and learn how to connect to local, regional, and global networks.
we also provide:
Stress-reduction practices (mindfulness activities) such as nature journaling, breath work, and increased awareness of surroundings will be implemented to help awaken the senses and enable one to be fully present in the moment.
Mindfulness practices have been show to improve breathing, lower heart rate, improve circulation, improve immune function, reduce physcial stress responses, improve sleet, and much more. Learn more here.
Guardians of the Sea provides important time away from the computer, TV, and cell phone enabling more time for learning, interacting, and 100% engagement.
