Scuba at Camp Workcoeman

Is your unit planning on attending the Florida Sea Base? If so, get your required SCUBA certification while attending a week of Scouts BSA camp at Camp Workcoeman. Located in the scenic hills of northwestern Connecticut, Camp Workcoeman boasts one of the cleanest lakes around—perfect for learning to SCUBA dive locally in New England.

During the third and fifth weeks of Scout camp, instructors from the Enfield Scuba and Watersports will also offer a full PADI Open Water certification course. The cost of the full certification course is $550, which includes the course fee and covers a full week’s stay at camp.
