There are 3 steps to our Boy Scout program for Open Water SCUBA Certification.

2) Class & Pool Training ~ Develop your SCUBA skills with your instructor in the pool and solidify your dive theory in the classroom. For your troop's convenience, we offer classes multiple times per month here at our retail facility in our on-site, heated, salt-water pool.

3) Open Water Dives ~ The final step of your certification is to complete 4 open water dives to show yourself and your instructor your competency as a diver. In the summer months, we offer these dives at Aurora Reservoir. In the winter, dives are available in the geothermal hot springs of Homestead Crater.

Private Swim Lessons

Swimming and water sports are a fundamental part of the Boy Scout program. Annual swim tests are held every year to attend summer camp. The Swimming Merit Badge is required for Eagle. All scouts have to complete swimming requirements for 2nd and 1st class. If navigating the water is new or uncomfortable for you, we can help!

Our swim instructors work with all ages and abilities. Through our private lesson program, we've helped students not only learn to love the water, but to go from standing in the shallow end to diving in the ocean.
