2019 Scuba Camp for Kids
Give your kids a fun-filled week they will remember forever!
2019 dates are: June 17-21, July 8-12, July 29-August 2
During the summer (out of school) months, Dayo Scuba offers Scuba Camp for children aged 10-14 years, who want to learn how to scuba dive.
Over this week-long course (Monday-Friday) kids learn the skills necessary to become a certified SCUBA diver while enjoying the fun and companionship of other children of similar age.
Monday we review some academics and learn how to assemble & disassemble scuba gear. Each child is fitted for the gear they will use for the rest of the week. We practice some swimming, snorkeling & duck diving in the pool after lunch.
Tuesday we do some more academics and several dives in the pool.
Wednesday we complete the final multiple choice test, followed after lunch with more pool dives.
Thursday and Friday we visit the scuba camp, Lake Denton in Avon Park, and do the open water dives.
Children aged 10-14 years of age, that successfully all course requirements, receive a junior open water rating. This allows them to participate in other SCUBA diving activities, as long as they are accompanied by a scuba diving certified parent or guardian. When the child turns 15 they will be eligible for a full certification.
Parents are responsible for transportation to and from the dive store/pool complex each day. Children need to bring a packed lunch for each day. A bus will transport the children to and from the dive sites Thursday & Friday.
All necessary SCUBA equipment will be supplied during the course. Kids only need to bring a bathing suit, towel and dry clothes.
Participation in any of our scuba programs is subject to the completion of a Medical Release form (SDI Medical Link). Students will need to answer each line of the medical statement with a complete yes or no. If a student has a YES to any of the medical questions, they will need to have a physician sign off stating that they are able to join us in the class. This must be done PRIOR to any pool or water sessions.
Here is a link to the forms we need:
Disregard the last page, the rental form, as we will be transporting all that ourselves.
From meeting new friends to seeing new sites, there are lots of reasons for children to attend a scuba camp this summer! At their own pace, each child learns to be a responsible, safe and confident diver. Emphasis is on environmental stewardship, safety, teamwork and fun!
