Youth Dive Camp

Learn Scuba Chicago is pleased to announce our Youth Dive Camps!

Back again this year, the LSC Youth Open Water Scuba Camp aims to create a fun and accessible environment to certify young divers, develop dive skills, create confident leaders in the water, and build a sense of community with other divers. This one week long camp with not only cover basic dive skills, but also touch on underwater conservation, safety skills, and leadership. Camp participants will also have plenty of time to simply have fun and enjoy the challenges inherent to scuba diving! It’s so popular, we added a second whole open water camp this summer!

New in 2020, LSC is excited to announce our Advanced Open Water and Nitrox Youth Camp! For already open water certified divers, come expand your diving range and your skills with 2 more lifelong certs. You’ll be ready for new adventures such as deep diving, night diving, or how to best handle a multi-dive day. And parents, the most important skill behind all the training is how to be safe while diving in new environments!

Please contact us today with any questions or to reserve your spot(s)!
