Scuba BSA


Scuba BSA is a ‘Try Scuba’ activity that introduces qualified Boy Scout, Venturing, and registered 

adult participants to the special skills, equipment, and safety precautions associated with scuba diving, encourages aquatics activities that promote fitness and recreation, and provides a foundation for those who later will participate in more advanced underwater activity.

BSA Scuba Diving Merit Badge

The new Scuba Diving Merit Badge was approved by the BSA National Council in December 2009. The program at Diver’s World will provide certification as a NAUI Scuba Diver (or NAUI Junior Scuba Diver) for Scouts as required by the merit badge. Adult leaders are also welcome to attend the program with their Scouts and will receive the NAUI Scuba Diver certification. Please call for details (814) 459 – 3195.

Teen Scuba

At Diver’s World we have specifically designed a Teen Scuba course that caters to the needs and interests of teens seeking certification. Junior Scuba Diver is our entry level scuba certification course during which you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safely scuba dive in open water. When you complete your class you and your buddy will be free to explore and discover the many wonders of the underwater world…and, you will have earned a NAUI Junior Scuba Diver certification card which will enable you to do open water diving with another certified adult.
