June 2018 Programs

We’re excited for this summer’s lineup of programs.  Here is the current schedule for June 2018 Programs.  This doesn’t include the pickleball schedule, which is on Wednesdays and Sundays, time depending.  There is usually info on the calendar and the website about Pickleball. These should all also be in the Dewees Island App, (click here for IOS  and here for android) with links to register as well. It’s a little quirky~ click “buy ticket” if you want to reserve a spot.  If there’s no buy ticket button, just show up!

Mondays will provide crabbing lessons at the crab dock with the hospitality interns, and a rotating naturalist choice activity.  Tuesdays will have Family Activity/adventures: each with a different theme.  Fun for all ages!  Wednesdays is Ladies coffee and pickle ball, Fridays are turtle meetings and a nature activity.  Come join in on the fun!
