Savannah’s beautiful marshes and islands serve as the setting for Savannah Country Day School’s Coastal Ecology Camp this summer. Each weeklong session takes students into the fascinating world of this fragile ecosystem.

Led by Bill Eswine, Savannah Country Day’s science coordinator for the Lower School and Director of the Coastal Ecology Program, the camp includes marsh studies at the Marine Institute, a beach erosion study at Cockspur Island and Tybee Island, a trip to Sapelo Island in nearby McIntosh County, and visits to many other coastal sites. Savannah Country Day’s Coastal Ecology Camp has been held annually since 1982 and is open to all children.   

Six sessions, beginning in June, are available for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. The Explorer Session June 19 - 23 is for students who are entering grades three through six.  This session includes day trips with the exception of a Thursday overnight camp-out. Some activities included are canoeing, a one-night camp-out (meals included), and day trips to local barrier islands and Sapelo Island in McIntosh County.  The cost is $385.00.

The general one-week camp sessions are $325.00 per student. Space is limited and sessions fill fast, so please return the attached application soon.  Registration will be online. For more details, call 912-961-8859.
