Hands-On Scuba Off-site – August 2, 2021 and Snorkeling Campout – August 20, 2021

DIVE! DIVE! DIVE!! SNORKEL! SNORKEL! SNORKEL!!

Troop 1000 and the Hornets Patrol have planned an amazing month for Aquatics. Starting August 2nd, all Scouts are invited to Scuba Adventures Plano for an off-site Diving Instructional meeting. $45 per scout, PayPal below. There the Scouts will get a one-of-a-kind experience to test real diving equipment in the water!

The SDI Scuba Discovery Program gives you a glimpse of what you can expect to experience in the underwater world as well as what you could expect to learn in the SDI Open Water Scuba Diver course. During this experience program, you will go through the basic safety procedures for enjoyable scuba diving under the watchful eye of an active SDI Instructor.


The campout this month will be at beautiful Trevor Rees-Jones in Athens, TX. We will leave Plano Friday night and then drive to the Athens Scuba Park early Saturday morning to get as much snorkel time as possible. $60 total with Park fees, food, gas and camping.
