In this four day camp, your kids will become fish! They will not only learn how to scuba dive, but also about marine science, leaning fish identifications all while playing games and having fun! This is Atlantic Edge's 13th year conducting Scuba Camp in the DC area.
The registration fee for Scuba Camp is $795. This includes all materials, instruction, and use of all scuba gear (BC, regulator, tanks, weights, mask, fins, snorkel, and wetsuit)
The minimum age to participate in our camp is 10 years old. Generally campers are between 10 and 15 years old, but if you have a camper older than 15 that would like to participate, we would love to have them!
Scuba Camp is a day camp. It’s a four day camp from 9am to 4pm on Monday through Thursday. Staff will remain until 5 to accommodate late pick ups.
We are currently accepting registrations with a $100 (non-refundable) deposit. Once registered, we will send you a packet of information including options for paying the registration fee balance.

Yes!! Scuba Camp is a great way for kids, even ones that are already certified, to get in the water, have fun, learn more, and meet other kids with similar interests. We encourage kids that are already certified to join us for camp.
We are proud to announce this is our 10th summer we will offer Scuba Camp.
Atlantic Edge cannot provide any transportation for campers. We will provide drinks and snacks for campers but all campers should plan on bringing personal lunches. We will have coolers for campers to put lunches in the morning when they arrive.
We are currently accepting registrations online. If you would like to sign up, view the schedule on our Scuba Camp page, and click the ‘register’ button next to the camp you would like to have your camper attend.
Campers at least 10 years old and who meet the minimum requirements as set by PADI, will receive what is called a ‘referral’, which means they will complete all their class work and pool work for their Open Water Diver Certification*. All campers have to do next is complete four Open Water Training Dives with an instructor and they will be fully certified. Atlantic Edge has training dives going on all summer, with local options in Northern Virginia and Westminster, Maryland, as well as in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Campers can also take their referrals with them on their next vacation and complete their dives with any instructor almost anywhere in the world.

* Campers that are under 15 at the time of their Training Dives will receive Jr. Open Water Diver certifications
