Dive Camp (ages 10-15)

Become A  Qualified PADI  Scuba Diver and gain important life skills!

Our Dive Camps are a camp like no other! Over the course of this action packed camp, young people will become qualified PADI Junior Scuba Divers and learn important First Aid & Water Safety skills that may someday save a life. They will also learn about the marine world and important environmental issues. There is a strong focus on team building, with participants gaining the knowledge and skills to excel in a safe & fun-filled environment.

 

The PADI Junior Diver Qualification certification can be upgraded to a regular one, without age-related restrictions once the diver turns 15.

Scuba Dive Training

The PADI Junior Scuba Diver course is the perfect way for any youngster to begin their underwater journey. It is the Scuba equivalent of a provisional license – you get to scuba dive but you are limited in-depth and you must be accompanied by a PADI professional level diver.  With nearly 5000 PADI Centres in over 175 countries, there’s no shortage of opportunities for young people to dive both here and abroad!

The PADI Junior Scuba Diver course consists of the following;

1) Back to school (Theory Section)

Knowledge Development is a very important part of the PADI Scuba Diver course. We will complete three different sections of theory that will give participants an understanding of the basic principles of scuba diving.

 

2) Skills practice (Confined Dives)


The PADI Scuba Diver course consists of three shallow water (2.5 meters) confined dives. These dives take place in our custom made dive tank and in the sheltered bay of Roberts Cove. During training dives,  participants will learn basic Scuba skills and become comfortable underwater while working together as a team.

 

3) Time to explore (Open Water Dives)

The last stage of the course involves putting these newly learned skills and knowledge into action, as divers embark on two Open Water Dives. This is their opportunity to explore a whole new world and experience all Scuba diving has to offer.

Water Safety

No summer marine based summer camp would be complete with a Water Safety workshop! During the workshop, participants will gain a much greater understanding of things to be aware of and potential hazards when spending time at the coast.  They will gain invaluable skills that may save their own or someone else life if the worst was ever to happen. 

Topics covered on the beach include; 

  • Responding to a drowning event

  • Understanding Rip Currents

  • Tides

  • Safety on the sea

First Aid Training

At Oceans of Discovery, we firmly believe that all young people should be given the skills and knowledge to effectively respond to a range of potentially life threatening emergencies. We take a very hands on approach to training, with camp members practicing on a range of manikins and other training aids. They will also get to put their new skills and knowledge to the test with a range of practice scenarios.

Topics covered include the following;

  • How to activate emergencies services

  • Burns treatment 

  • Responding to bleeding

  • Seizures

  • Recovery position

  • Responding to choking

  • Stokes & heart attacks

  • Responding to a cardiac arrest

  • CPR practice

  • AED Defibrillator demonstration
