The first day started out with a snorkel and sustainable systems scavenger hunt to get everyone acquainted to campus and life at The Island School. Later, they got to do some kayaking, Bahamian dance, and attend a presentation from our plastics research enthusiast, Miss Kristal Ambrose.
On their second day, they had a chance to go on a discover scuba dive! This is for youngsters who are not certified yet but still want to try their hand at breathing underwater. Even Gwyndolyn Domino, who is already open water certified, got a chance to get another full dive under her belt. The day continued with a reef snorkel and presentation on shark ecology.
On their last day, the campers swam the marina cut for morning exercise, then headed to Paige Creek for a mangrove lesson and snorkel. The afternoon was spent at a beautiful sandbar just off of campus where they learned some geology and explored a land full of echinoderms (if you don’t know, you’ll have to ask them)!
We are more than excited to see what’s to come for the rest of the week!
