Lighthouse Lenses and Natural History Sketching

Suzu Seki & Chloe Kaalman, Tabor Academy & Brookfield High School

SEA Semester

Today, we woke up at 7:30, as usual, and headed to the commons for pancakes and bacon. It was really foggy outside, unlike the past days. No one seems to enjoy this weather. After breakfast, we played Wa (a fun, silly camp game) on the field then headed to a lighthouse about five minutes away.

Second Full Day of SEAScape

Alanna Franolich-Lantigua & Becca Ward-Diorio, Stroudsburg Junior HS & Boiling Springs HS

SEA Semester

Hi, we’re Alanna and Becca and today was the second full day of SEASCape.

We woke up at 7:30 as usual, and ate breakfast in our cabins. The humidity seemed to have built up over the night, so everything seemed just a little sticky.

Sure was a Great First Day for SEASCape Session 1!

Jess Eccleston & Ivy Albright, New Canaan High School & Holliston High School

SEA Semester

Today was our first full day at SEASCape! We all woke up at 7:30 to get dressed and ready for breakfast at 8:00. After our bowls of cereal and bushels of grapes, we learned about the chore rotations and watch groups. We were then able to meet with our watch groups to begin learning how to tie basic knots.

Graduation Day

Sabrina Hutchinson, Steward

It’s hard to believe another SEASCape class has already come and gone from the SEA campus. Just three short weeks ago, the RAs and I welcomed 28 high school students from across the country and around the world to our little home here on Cape Cod. Little did they know what this program had in store for them! The amount of personal growth that occurred these past 21 days is astonishing – many of these students went from timid and unsure of being away from home to independent, strong leaders in their community here.

A Day of LASTS

Julia Fernandez and Colette Shaw, De La Salle Santiago Zobel and Las Lomas Walnut Creek

SEA Semester

We started out with our cereal breakfast and got ready (emotionally and physically) for our LAST academic day.

We learned in the morning about deep sea animals and underwater vents all over the world. For oceans and societies and reviewed all we had learned and shared the narratives we had been writing about our place in the ocean history.

Career Day & Chasing Ice

Georgia Dettmann and Michell Fajardo, Bryn Mawr School and Port Chester High School

SEA Semester

Another day begins as we have breakfast together with our housemates. Once we get ready and go down, a table full of scones, sausages, and strawberries is waiting for us just calling our names. After eating, we began our chores and had our watch meetings, where we learned how to tie the clove hitch.

Whales!

Pippa Scroggins & Mairead Brownell, Montclair High School & Grinnell-Newburg High School

SEA Semester

This morning we woke up bright and early to a breakfast of English muffins. At 7:30, we boarded the school bus and embarked on the hour long journey to Plymouth where we were scheduled to go whale watching.

The boat was large and crowded, but our hopes were high and we enjoyed looking out at the vast and open ocean. After an hour of sailing to our destination, we came to an abrupt stop where we saw several humpback whales. Humpback whales are between 35 and 55 feet long, so seeing these massive creatures ride in and out of the waves made our respect for the ocean and its ecosystems greater than it had been when we arrived in Woods Hole two weeks ago.

A Sunny Sunday

Neal Jiwnani & Spencer Hulsman-Wells, Hunterdon Central Regional High School & Garfield High School

SEA Semester

Sundays here at SEAscape are non-academic days, which means that students take advantage of the local beaches and downtown Falmouth! At the start of the day most people sleep in until about 9, or wake up at 8 and do yoga.
