Action Scuba Montreal Introduces New Scuba Diving Activities for Local Scouts
Action Scuba has launched a new scuba diving program for Montreal area Scouts that builds on the globally recognised PADI system of dive education, with particlar emphasis on the environment and personal growth.
Action Scuba, Montreal`s scuba diving experts, are pleased to announce a new scuba program for local Scouts Canada troops that incorporates fun diving experiences with educational programs about the environment.
Building on the core PADI scuba diving programs enjoyed by millions of people globally, the new Action Scuba Program for Scouts includes a range of activities from introductory trial sessions in local pools through to full scuba diving certification programs that can allow Scout members to earn merit badges. These courses embrace the values promoted by Scouts Canada, including respect for the environment and personal growth.
Offered as part of the program are free visits to local troop meetings by Action Scuba instructors to promote environmental awareness and educate the troop members about marine conservation and underwater ecosystems.
The program also includes ongoing continuing education courses for those kids and teens who want to improve their scuba skills while working towards their ultimate goal of a career in scuba diving as a Divemaster or Instructor. Becoming a dive professional affords young adults an opportunity to meet new people, travel the world and develop a close bond with the world around them.
Recognising that not all kids can afford these kinds of experiences, the Action Scuba Program for Scouts also includes a scholarship aspect to allow deserving but underprivileged kids to join their friends in the program.
“My team and I have always been passionate about helping young people discover the joys of scuba diving,” says Gary Davis, owner of Action Scuba and a PADI Master Instructor who has personally certified over 750 divers. “This sport really gives kids and teenagers a positive activity on which to focus their energy while developing appreciation for the environment. I really cannot imagine a better way to give back to the local community. ”
Local Montreal Scouts troop leaders interested in organising their own scuba diving experiences with Action Scuba are encouraged to contact the shop directly or visit their website for more information.
