Not many camps in the Midwest can say they offer SCUBA and Snorkeling classes. Scouts looking for a new challenge, preparing for a trip to Seabase, or who just have an interest in underwater adventures, will be thrilled by the SCUBA and Snorkeling programs at Camp Friedlander...
The PADI SCUBA program is offered by a local certified SCUBA-diving group, taking advantage of the skill and equipment they have available. Scouts will learn basic SCUBA-diving techniques and will be able to practice in our large swimming pool. Participants will receive the BSA Snorkeling certification card. There is a $45 additional fee per participant to be paid with camp registration fees. Participants must be at least 14 years old and classified as a swimmer.
The PADI Snorkeling program will give Scouts a chance to explore Lake Marge Schott from underwater. Scouts will learn how to properly use snorkeling equipment and practice good techniques. Participants can earn the BSA Snorkeling certification card. There is an additional $35 fee per participant to be paid with camp registration fees. This program is not recommended for younger Scouts, and all participants must be classified as swimmers.
SCUBA and Snorkeling participants must complete the SCUBA and Snorkeling Release form. If any of the answers to the medical self-assessment are "yes," the SCUBA and Snorkeling Medical Statement, including a physician's signature, is also required.Last Updated on Friday, 04 March 2011 10:30
