Registration OPEN

Our after school program uses fun hands-on games and activities to teach kids cool ocean science about different marine animals, the threats impacting these animals and simple actions we can take to help. We also help kids develop essential life skills like teamwork, leadership, critical thinking and problem-solving. Our inquiry-based curriculum fulfills the new BC Ministry of Education requirements, all while empowering the kids to make the world a better place while having lots of fun! 

Fall 2019 (Sept 24-Nov 14): Awesome Animals* - Off of the coast of BC, we have so many awesome animals including sea stars, humpback whales and octopods! This term we will be learning all about these creatures, what threats they face and what you can be to become an environmental champion.

Winter 2020 (Jan 21-Mar 13) : Cool Critters* - The depths of the ocean has so many cool critters including glass sponge reefs, seahorses and sharks!  This term we will investigate how sea levels rising, oil spills and ocean acidification affect these critters and what we can do to help!

Spring 2020 (April 14-June 5): Coastal Connections - This spring program is completely outside at the beach or forest next to your child’s school! Students will investigate the biodiversity of the area, inquire about the connection between the forest and the ocean and build critical thinking and leadership skills.

*Eagle Harbour’s dates are different (Term 1: Awesome Animals - Sept 11-Oct 30; Term 2: Cool Critters - Nov 6-Dec 18)


Bursary Program

Sea Smart's mission is to inspire and empower kids to love and protect our oceans. We would love as many kids as possible to participate in our programs and are happy to offer a bursary program for students with financial need or special circumstances. Bursaries are based on a pay-what-you-can system. Proceeds from our Bursary Fund Goodies, go towards funding this program.
