SCUBA Course at Camp Parsons!

Camp Parson is excited to be partnering with Jade SCUBA Adventures this summer to provide SCUBA program for up to 12 Scouts and Adults each week at camp! 

Through this all-week program participants will be able to complete the requirements for the BSA Scuba Award, SCUBA MB, and SDI Open Water Certification.

Each participant will need to complete eLearning (about 10 hours of work) prior to their classroom session (video conference). We will set up a schedule of Class 1 and Class 2 (two hours each) videoconference sections throughout June on various days/times. (TBA)

Participants are welcome to join any that fit their schedule (or attend multiple sessions if they are struggling with the material), as long as they have completed 1 and 2 after their eLearning. A swim check will be required consisting of a 200-yard swim or 300-yard swim with mask/snorkel/fins and a 10-minute float.

The cost of the program is $900 and will be due prior to the start of the program.  If payment arrangements are necessary, contact the Camping Department at
