This Camp Connections session is for rising 9th-12th graders. BRAND NEW this summer, high school girls can earn their SCUBA certification in just one week of camp! Participants MUST be able to swim 200 yards without stopping, using any swimming strokes that you prefer, AND tread water for 10 minutes non-stop. Start practicing now! We will be learning skills in the Camp Tanasi pool and then venture to a local quarry for a check-out dive with our certified trainers. Girls will be staying in small, three season cabins with platform beds/mattresses and electricity. The price of this week includes all rental gear and SCUBA certification. Girls will have extra medical and permission forms and be required to do online learning prior to arriving at Camp Tanasi and will be sent the material at least two weeks in advance. For more questions to see if this week is a good fit for you, email us at
