Send Your Kids to a Camp That Will Last Them a Lifetime! Scuba Camp!
In this four-day camp, your kids will become fish! They will not only learn how to scuba dive, but also about marine science, learning fish identifications all while playing games and having fun. This is Atlantic Edge's 22nd year conducting Scuba Camp in the DC area.
The registration fee for Scuba Camp is $995. This includes all materials, instruction, and use of all scuba gear (buoyancy compensator (BC), regulator, tanks, weights, mask, fins, snorkel, and wetsuit).
Payment is due at time of registration. We are currently accepting registrations . Mid-May, we will send you a packet of information needed to participate in camp.
The minimum age to participate in our camp is 10 years old. Generally campers are between 12 and 15 years old, but if you have a prospective camper older than 15 who would like to participate, we would love to have them!
Scuba Camp is a day camp, a four-day camp that runs from 9am to 4pm, Monday through Thursday. Staff will remain until 5 to accommodate late pick ups.
Can kids who are already certified participate in Scuba Camp?
Yes!! We encourage kids who are already certified to join us for camp. Scuba Camp is a great way for kids-even those that are already certified-to get in the water, have fun, learn more, and meet other kids with similar interests. We've had campers repeat the camp 3-4 times in the past.
We are proud to announce this is our 18th summer we will offer Scuba Camp.
Atlantic Edge cannot provide any transportation for campers. We will provide drinks and snacks for campers but they 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 below to register.
Campers that 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 Virginia and Maryland. 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

We'll send Campers an email containing the waiver packet within a week of registration.
