Aquatic Adventures is super excited to not only be a sponsor of ScubaJam Virginia but that this year we will be leading a group of scouts to ScubaJam Virginia and, of course, providing the required dive professional!
What is ScubaJam?
ScubaJam Virginia is designed to provide a great scuba diving experience for boys and girls, ages 11-20 in a weekend long event based around fun diving activities, land based demonstrations, camping and other social activities for certified young divers to share with friends.
ScubaJam Virginia is an event for any organized youth groups including BSA Troops and Crews as well as GSUSA, Boys & Girls Clubs and any other organized group. ScubaJam is not specifically sanctioned by BSA or other youth organization.
All participants must be registered with a participating group and the group must (1) register themselves and their members with the event, (2) take responsibility for meeting youth protection and control requirements of their respective organizations and (3) must have a dive professional attached to the group to take responsibility for their members diving activities.
