Ah, another school year is upon us and summer feels like it’s becoming just a happy memory – unless you’re on Amelia Island, of course, where school is in session all year long! Consider signing up for one of these popular “classes” to help you make the grade for the school year ahead.


The natural beauty of Amelia Island inspires the artist in all of us, but some of us need a little brushing up on our skills! Head back to the beginning at The Julie Delfs Gallery, where Adult Kindergarten Class is going to teach you the basics of Resin-Epoxy. You’ll make big kid decisions like choosing your colors and how to safely play with your friends.


It’s listening time at the Amelia Island Museum of History. Docent-led walking tours are ready to teach you all about the fascinating stories that make Fernandina Beach what it is today. Discover the Historic District, the architecture of the South Side, the Gilded Age on the island, and even some mysteries around the islands.

Marine Biology:

Check in at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island for the Atlantic Ocean Barrier Island Beach Ecology Summer Camp. Partnering with the Reef Institute, children and families can learn from a marine-scientist about the island’s unique ecosystem.

Phys Ed:

We all have our favorite physical activities, and on Amelia Island, the options are endless. Cycling, paddling, hiking, golfing, fishing – it’s time to get some energy out and find your center. Combine the adventure of paddleboarding and the calm of yoga during a SUP Yoga class with Amelia Island Paddle Surf Company.


From the ABC’s to Legendary Locals of Amelia Island, there’s an English lesson to be learned in the pages of every book at the Story and Song Neighborhood Bookstore Bistro. Grab a sandwich and catch up on your next great read or take in a live performance.

Extra Credit:

Ever fall asleep during school? Well, now you can do it in style at the Amelia Schoolhouse Inn, once the local school, and now an award-winning, 17-room boutique hotel. Head straight to The Principal’s Office Bar for a premium cocktail to complete the experience.
