Camp St. Christopher July Turtle Walks

Seabrook Island is a hot spot for female loggerhead sea turtles to nest during the summer months. After incubating in the nest 45-60 days, the nests begin to hatch in July and most often do so during the night. Join our naturalists at Camp St. Christopher’s to learn about the life cycle and story of the loggerhead sea turtle. Students will find and relocate a model turtle nest, learn about the dangers sea turtles face and how to protect these animals. The class will end with a walk down the beach to monitor nests ready to hatch.

When: Every Wednesday night in July from 7:00-9:00 pm (when sea turtle hatching season begins)

Where: St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center

Who: Open to all ages

Register: Click here to reserve a spot. Cost is $20 per person.
