Youth Summer Certification Camp - Ages 12 - 19 (Formally the SFU Certification Camp)

Ocean Quest has been running Youth Certfication Camps for the past 15 years. Our instructors have lots of experience and our ratios are never larger than 4 students per instructor. This camp includes full PADI Open Water certifcation and all ocean dives are conducted in drysuits to keep student divers warm and comfortable.

Note that although age in a primary factor in choosing participants, students must also have the physical strength to handle the equipment and the maturity to learn the material, listen to instructors directions, etc. It is suggested that students weigh at least 100 lbs / 45 kgs to fit drysuits and handle the equipment.

Camps are conducted Monday to Friday where students will learn the basics of scuba in the pool and progress to complete 4 ocean dives.  Successful completion will earn participants the most recognized scuba certification in the world – PADI Open Water Diver.

Knowledge development will be conducted at Ocean Quest. Pool dives and ocean dives are held off site.

Basic swimming ability required.

Registration and payment is made through Ocean Quest.
