Since the launch of the new Boy Scouts Scuba Diving Merit Badge, scouts across the United States have been eager to get certified!
A fun summer activity for kids of all ages, scuba diving isn’t just limited to the ocean. Scouts can dive practically anywhere there’s water – from a lake to the sprints and all points in between, including the ocean, quarries, and rivers.
To earn a Scuba Diving Merit Badge, Boy Scouts must complete four main components:
- Boy Scouts of Americas (BSA) requirements
- Scuba knowledge development
- Confined Water Dives
- Open Water Dives
Scouts that are already certified in scuba just have to complete the remaining BSA requirements to receive their merit badge!
