We have approved Merit Badge Counselors on staff to assist you with obtaining your Boy Scout Merit Badges.  We can teach the following Merit Badges: Scuba Diving Merit Badge, Swimming Merit Badge, and First Aid Merit Badge.  We have an indoor, heated swimming pool for all water activities and a state of the art classroom for all class-related activities.

Scuba Adventures can also help you raise money through our Boy Scout Fundraising Program. 

Earn The Scuba Diving Merit Badge

Are you ready to jump in and get your Scuba Diving Merit Badge?! Scuba diving is a life changing experience that enables you to embrace challenges in a whole new way. The first breath underwater, the feeling of total weightlessness as you fly through the water enables you to be part of something so amazing it transforms your life.

Thousands of scouts have delved into the world of scuba diving with Scuba Adventures through jamboree, local camporees, and high adventure trips.  And now that the BSA and SDI (Scuba Diving International) have teamed up to offer the Scuba Diving Merit Badge, there are countless opportunities for Scouts to explore the thrill of scuba diving.

Scuba Diving Merit Badge Schedule

All Scuba Diving Merit Badge Classes are scheduled over two days

For individual scouts, you can attend any of our Open Water Scuba classes for the public.

If you are a troop and want to schedule a private class for your troop, please give us a call at 972-423-3483 and ask us about scheduling a class just for your troop!

Earn The Swimming Merit Badge

Swimming is a leisure activity, a competitive sport, and a basic survival skill. Scouts who earn this badge will learn about safety when swimming and diving, how swimming can contribute to overall fitness and health, and gain some basic competitive swimming skills. The Swimming Merit Badge program requires at least two buddy teams to effectively conduct the course. And it’s required for the rank of Eagle Scout.

Swimming Merit Badge Schedule

Scuba Adventures offers the Boy Scout Swimming Merit Badge on select Saturdays from 8am-12pm. Our indoor, heated pool is perfect for year-round training!  Whether it’s just an individual scout or a whole troop, we can meet your Swimming Merit Badge needs! Don’t see a schedule that fits for your troop? Let us know and we will schedule something around your needs.
Boy Scout First Aid Merit Badge

Earn The First Aid Merit Badge

In the company gym, an older gentleman complains of chest pains and uncomfortable pressure in his chest, a schoolmate suddenly collapses on the playground, a total stranger gasps for breath in a restaurant….these things happen every day to everyday people.  Some of them just need a helping hand, while others may suffer permanent injury or even death without immediate attention.

In the First Aid Merit Badge course, you will learn the necessary emergency primary and secondary care steps in the right order, so you do the right things at the right time.

First Aid Merit Badge Schedule

All First Aid Merit Badge classes are held on select Saturday mornings from 8am – 12pm.

Don’t see a schedule that fits for your troop? Let us know and we will schedule something around your needs.

Earn The Lifesaving Merit Badge

No Boy Scout will ignore a plea for help. However, the desire to help is little use unless one knows how to give the proper aid.

The main purpose of the Lifesaving merit badge is to prepare Scouts to assist those involved in water accidents, teaching them the basic knowledge of rescue techniques, the skills to perform them, and the judgment to know when and how to act so that they can be prepared for emergencies.

Lifesaving Merit Badge Schedule

All Lifesaving Merit Badge classes are held on Saturdays from 8am-12pm

Boy scout Oceanography Merit Badge

Earn Oceanography Merit Badge

Learn about marine science and the delicate balance of life in our oceans while earning the Oceanography merit badge. The oceans cover more than 70 percent of our planet and are the dominant feature of Earth.

Wherever you live, the oceans influence the weather, the soil, the air, and the geography of your community. To study the oceans is to study Earth itself.

Boy Scout Fundraising

Start a Fundraiser with Scuba Adventures

Here’s how the program works:

First, you schedule a fundraiser Discover Scuba class through Scuba Adventures. These are typically held on Saturdays or Sundays.  We will help you with Facebook pages and marketing materials. YOU decide how much you want to charge for the event per person.

Scuba Adventures takes $5 from your price for instructor and equipment costs.  The rest you keep for your troop!  So if you charge the same rate of $45 that we charge, you would make $40 per person!

We take care of everything on the day of the event.  All you have to do is market the event, invite all your friends and family, and show up for a good time!!

Call us at (972) 423-3483 to get your fundraiser started!  It’s a lot better than selling popcorn!!
