SCUBA Camp June 17-21, July 22-26, August 12-16, 2019
Science and SCUBA Camp targets 12-16 year olds who are interested in obtaining their NAUI dive certification while also being introduced to SCUBA as a tool for science. This camp will partner with Roanoke Island Outfitters Dive Center to provide SCUBA instruction for students to earn a lifetime certification. Campers will take classes, explore techniques, and if they pass all requirements they will leave camp with a NAUI SCUBA Certification. Campers will also explore local ecosystems, snorkel and gain valuable insight into the work of scientists and local ecosystems. DISCLAIMER: Additional medical information will be collected by Roanoke Island Outfitters to participate in this camp. Registration for this camp is not complete until the prospective campers have filled out medical forms with the dive shop. There are online modules that will need to be completed before camp begins to prepare for the dive classes. Campers need to be able to pass a swim test the 1st day of camp to participate which includes an underwater swim, 10-minute water tread, and a swim of any stroke for 4 lengths of the pool. Each camper is also required to purchase their own mask, fins, booties and snorkel prior to camp.
