BOY SCOUT INFORMATION:

Hey Boy Scouts ages 13-17, have you ever wanted to learn to Scuba Dive and earn a Scuba Merit Badge while you are at it? Are you headed to Sea Base and want to be certified by the time you get there? Are you interested in earning a passport to the final frontier? Now is your chance. Family Dive Club is offering two Sessions of Teen Scuba Camp in June 2019. Each camp provides you an opportunity to satisfy all the requirements to earn a PADI Open Water Scuba Certification and your Scuba Merit Badge. Camp is not for everybody. It requires a strong desire to learn to scuba dive, a mature disposition, strong swimming skills, a willingness to work hard, and a positive attitude. If this sounds like you, then we invite you to sign up for an adventure of a lifetime. If the camp fee is too much for your family, then we invite you to apply for one of the six scholarships exclusively for Boy Scouts. Check out the scholarship information below. If you are not quite old enough for Teen Scuba Camp, then check out our Kid’s Ocean Camp for kids ages 8-11. It’s a blast. We hope to see you and your friends next summer.
