Come try out our coolest Vacation Camp and latest sports craze by joining the PADI Seal Team! We’ll be doing 5 AquaMisssions, designed to teach young divers the basics of diving. AquaMissions are underwater pool adventures and include AquaMission: Snapshot Specialist, where young divers take pictures of each other diving underwater, and AquaMission: Night Specialist, where they’re diving in the dark with flashlights!

The PADI Seal Team is for kids 8-15 years old, with a maximum of 6 campers. They must be comfortable in the water, but no prior experience is necessary, and parental approval is required. Campers will go through a safety orientation and will be using our snorkel equipment in our pools. This camp is taught be Gary Melius, Certified PADI Divemaster and Instructor with Doc’s Scuba. Children must bring swimsuits and towels. For more information, contact Andrew Katz at 518-438-6651, ext. 113, or .
