Aquatic Adventures supports Girl Scout and Boy Scouting programs.  We have years of experience introducing scouts to the exciting world of Scuba Diving.

Scuba BSA Patch

Scuba BSA is a great way for scouts to try diving.  SCUBA BSA teaches the Scouts and interested Adult Leaders the beginning scuba skills in the safe environment of a pool under the guidance of a highly trained PADI Instructor.  Scouts will learn how to assemble the scuba equipment, how to breathe underwater using scuba, equalize their ears, and clear their mask underwater.   After the skills are taught, plenty of time is left for fun and games. 

Troops who provide the SCUBA BSA forms for each scout will get them signed by a PADI professional to submit to Council in order to receive the patch.

Get Certified for BSA Seabase

Enroll your interested Scouts and adult leaders in the PADI Open Water Course and have everyone certified to dive at camp. Certified divers can participate in several Seabase adventures (Scuba Adventure, Live-aboard Dive Adventure) and can even train to become SCUBA Staff at Seabase. Contact us to schedule your Troop for this underwater challenge.

Scuba Diving Merit Badge

We have a NCAC registered Scuba Diving Merit Badge Instructor on Staff to help scouts complete this merit badge.  Scouts must be certified Scuba Divers in order to earn this merit badge.  

Girl Scout SCUBA Interest Project Patch

Girl Scouts, are you looking for a new adventure?  Are you interested in the undersea world?  Come earn your Scuba Interest Project Patch (IPP) and explore the world that awaits you underwater!  You can plan a class for your troop today. 

Scuba GSA teaches Scouts the beginning SCUBA skills in the safe environment of a pool under the direct supervision of a PADI instructor.  Scouts will learn how to assemble equipment, clear your mask underwater, equalize your ears and how to breathe underwater using SCUBA equipment.  Once scouts have learned the skills you will be able to practice their skills and play games underwater.

This introduction to SCUBA is a great way for Girl Scouts, 12 and older, to try diving.  If you are interested in more training, you can take the Open Water Class to become fully certified divers.  

Aquatic Adventures’ Scuba GSA course includes all the training to qualify for the Girl Scout Interest Project Patch.  Schedule a class and join the ranks of Scouts who have earned this unique award!

We have the GSA on our Insurance, so we are recognized as a registered training facility for GSA water programs.
