​What makes our camp different from other camps?

Curious Minds Dive Foundation summer camps allow teenagers to explore the marvels of the underwater world. It is an amazing opportunity to master a unique skill that helps them develop teamwork and people skills. Moreover, SCUBA is an exhilarating physical activity that has great potential for lifelong learning! These camps, led by educators and SCUBA professionals, bring together youths from all over the United States and are designed to build confidence in all participants. Daily in-water sessions hone basic SCUBA skills and then gradually introduce more advanced dive topics with the potential to achieve additional certifications. Typical dive topics include:

  • Fish and Coral ID
  • Night Dives
  • Underwater Photography
  • Wreck Dives
  • Search & Recovery
  • Coral Restoration Planting
