One Week Summer Holiday Scuba Camps
A WEEK OF PURE ADRENALIN AND FUN
Join us for one week at our lake during the Summer 2021 holidays. The week long adventure is for anyone aged 12 years and above.
We offer two holiday camp options at Mercers Country Park, South London;
1. ADVENTURE WEEK
This week is designed to give children who are already qualified lots of fun above and below the water line, improve their diving skills, learn about the marine habitat and conservation as well as exploring new dive sites.
2. QUALIFY AND EXPLORATION WEEK
This week takes children who have never been diving before and takes them all the way to PADI open water qualified divers. There is still plenty of time to explore the lake, see lots of fish and have plenty of fun.
Scuba Courses for 8-10 year olds
The Bubblemaker program is fun, easy and a safe way for youngsters to join in the family fun of scuba diving! After some serious fun with a game of underwater frisbee, the children are given a wall certificate to show off to all their friends. Children should be OK in the water but they don’t have to be great swimmers since the maximum depth is only 2m.
- For children eight years and older who want to have fun in the pool
- Conducted by a PADI Instructor
- No pre-training required
- Uses equipment made for children
- Typical sessions last about 1 1/2 hours (sign up, gear up and fun included)
PADI Seal Team
This exciting weekly program is built around action-packed AquaMissions!
What’s an AquaMission?
It’s an underwater pool adventure where kids learn new scuba activities. Kids learn how to float underwater like an Astronaut or take pictures of each other scuba diving.
Supported by a manual and logbook, the PADI Seal Team program is broken into two parts. Part one, AquaMissions 1 – 5, teaches kids the basics of diving – things like buoyancy control, mask clearing, regulator recovery, etc. After building a solid foundation of scuba skills, kids move on to part two.
Part two is full of Specialty AquaMissions. These cool dives teach kids different scuba activities including:
- Underwater Scooter Specialist
- Creature ID Specialist
- Environmental Specialist
- Inner Space Specialist
- Navigation Specialist
- Night Specialist
- Safety Specialist
- Search & Recover Specialist
- Skin Diver Specialist
- Snapshot Specialist
- Wreck Specialist
As you can see, PADI Seals get to sample a wide variety of dives. And the best part of the Specialty AquaMissions, they reinforce safe diving skills while the kids are having fun. Get involved today – pool diving has never been this adventurous!
