- Your scout is NOT enrolled in a class until you check out. If you have a large number of Scouts, you may want to check out in between entries to ensure you do not lose information.
- BSA SCUBA INFORMATION:
While the youth will have the opportunity to dive underwater in the camp’s pool, this class is NOT a PADI certification program because youth will not participate in an open water dive.
In order to participate in the Scuba program, parents and youth must read the Youth Diving Flip Chart and complete the following forms. Please note the Red box outlined on the BSA Medical (part C) which needs to be indicated by your doctor in order to participate in Scuba.
