Just imagine where you will go! Begin your underwater explorations by enrolling in our Scuba Camp. This is our entry-level certification course where you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safely dive in open water.
Scuba Camp is a unique program that we offer in the summer months where students will learn about modern dive equipment, diving sciences, responsible diving practices and the environment. Diving skills will be taught and practiced first in the comfort and convenience of a confined water environment (pool) and then students will finish in an real world open water setting to earn their Open Water Scuba Diver rating*.
Scuba Camp is open to people of all ages 12+ but it is specially designed as a one week (plus open water) camp for students. Students will meet every day from 9am to 3pm.
Earning your Scuba Diver Certification card is an accomplishment for which you will rightfully feel proud and you will be ready to begin a lifetime of underwater adventures and discovering.
Diver’s World’s team of professional SDI/NAUI Instructors have over 120 years of combined experience you can trust.

*Divers aged 12 to 15 will earn a Jr. Scuba Diver certification which will allow them to dive safely with another adult diver. Once they turn 15, they are eligible to upgrade to a full Open Water certification.
As long as you are 12 years or older and in good physical condition, you can enroll in a Diver’s World Scuba Diver course. Click here to review our Medical History Questionnaire. Your safety is the most important thing to us: You may be asked to review your health with your family doctor just to be sure.
Please note that, as a scuba diver, you will be spending a lot of time in the water. You need not be an outstanding swimmer but we will conduct some simple swim tests to ensure that you are comfortable in the water.
Your class fee will cover all of the costs and equipment* to get you certified including certification fees, instructional fees, pool fees, NAUI educational materials, log book and two days of open water instruction with your Instructor(s) and Dive Master. Your class also includes the use of Diver’s World tanks, buoyancy compensation device (BCD), regulator with octopus, gauges, and dive computer for all pool sessions. You will also get a FREE six month subscription to Dive Training Magazine.
You will only need to provide your own bathing suit and towel*.
*We do recommend that students have their own personal mask, snorkel, fins, boots and gloves. Ask about our package discounts so you can have the assurance of proper fit and excellent quality 100% Internet Price Matching**: Remember, if you find a lower price for the exact same item, we will match it!
**Some restriction apply. See store for details.
After your classroom and pool instruction you will be required to demonstrate your skills in open water. This generally requires two days/mornings of diving which can be accomplished through a local dive with Diver’s World. Alternatively, some of our students elect to do their open water dives on a vacation/dive trip and Diver’s World will provide a open water referral for you to complete your dives on your trip. Unlike some other dive centers, at Diver’s World there is no separate instruction fee for your open water dives nor for a referral; these fees are included in your class tuition.
In either case, you will need to provide your own transportation, equipment (yours and/or rented), environmental suit and accommodations. Rental equipment is available through Diver’s World. Many of our local dives are within a couple of hours drive (or right here in our own Lake Erie or Presque Isle Bay) and classmates frequently arrange for travel together.
