Scuba Camp

This course lays an excellent foundation for a PADI Junior Open Water Course.

If you are aged 8-12, like the water, and  want to do something different in the holidays, then this is the course for you.

No experience required. You just have to be able to swim 25m unassisted, be taller than 1.2 m and be comfortable in the deep water end of our pool.

About scuba camp

It’s an intensive 6 session course which will take you through the basics of scuba diving in the comfort and safety of Andark’s own 3.4 metre pool. We’ll start with snorkelling techniques, then introduce you to scuba equipment. By the end of the week you should be able to put your scuba gear together, do a buddy check, clear your mask, perform regulator recovery, and practice safe buoyancy in the deep end. The last session will be fun and games with the opportunity to try out some of out equipment like our underwater scooter! (If you are interested but can’t find dates to suit you we also run this entry level course as on Saturday afternoons see ‘Aquanauts’

What to bring
