Boy Scout Merit Badges

Boy Scout Merit Badges in Plano with Scuba Adventures

Scuba Adventures offers your child or scouts the ability to earn several Boy Scout Merit Badges at our facility. We have approved Merit Badge Counselors on staff to assist you, your troop or your child with obtaining 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

Is your troop ready to jump in and get the 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-11am.

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 – 11am.

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-11am

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 $30 from your price for instructor and equipment costs.  The rest you keep for your troop!  So if you charge the same rate of $55 that we charge, you would make $25 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!

Customer Reviews

John Worthen July - 2020

I can’t recommend this place enough. After moving to the area, I read a lot of reviews and emailed several dive shops before going with Scuba Adventures. I choose them because they were the most responsive and helpful. The owners seem to not only be great divers but have business backgrounds. This is the most focus on customer service I have seen in a dive shop. Good inventory with all of the brands I could ask for. On point with their pricing. If you do find a better price they will work with you.

I ended up taking the Rescue Diver course and had a blast! I just got back from a dive trip with them at Lake Travis, very enjoyable. They also have one of the only indoor pools (18 ft.) in the area.

At Scuba ranch they have a big spot that is one of the easiest to get to and a nice pavilion for training. They are right next to the air refill station, which I love! Family and friends are welcome at the ranch. Good community there on weekends and you'll most likely find a dive buddy for a fun dive.

Maddie Womack August - 2020

Scuba Adventures and their staff are beyond amazing! Their Plano store has a very wide selection of equipment and the pool is 18ft deep! Their Scuba Ranch location is amazing and still growing, with plenty of room and seating. I’m a fairly new diver and all the instructors do an amazing job of making me feel safe and secure deep underwater. Their staff is always very helpful and I can’t wait to continue my diving knowledge and certificates with them.

Jason Domenden March - 2020

Found a great diving shop for all my gear. Been living here in texas for awhile and this shop has just what I needed. Really recommend scuba adventure for all your gear.

Emily Winnenberg March - 2020

Went in last week to pick out goggles for an upcoming trip— loved the selection of masks they had available! Ended up picking out a hot pink pair to shamelessly match the other accessories I’d picked out.

Matt K March - 2020

The new owners are the greatest! Their positive approach towards people and the sport of diving are huge part of the reason I love the sport. When they told me they were going to open a dive shop; I knew without a doubt I was going to be their customer. I have taken several dive adventures with them and other scuba diving misfits, and plan on taking many more.

Martin Garvie February - 2020

Decided to revisit this shop since it is under new management. Already impressed with the facility improvements - by far the best training pool I have seen. Looking forward to the roll out of the full training curriculum - will be able to go from open water certified through all kinds of technical specialties. Good dive gear selection. Owners really have a great vision for promoting scuba diving and ocean adventures.

Don Champlin July - 2020

This is the shop with the most experienced and competent personnel in the metroplex. Their commitment to safe, enjoyable and professional instruction is obvious from the first time you enter the store and meet the staff and owners. I have dove with most of them over the years and know first hand the love of diving they have and now share with the community as the new team. They are knowledgeable and up to date with the latest dive info. Don't miss a chance to dive with them.

Julie L February - 2020

In January 2020, Scuba Adventures was purchased by divers that were affiliated with a different scuba store. These same divers taught me to dive, and got me to fall in love with scuba diving (despite me being pretty scared to start). I trust them, enough that I opted to take a trip with them to Cozumel for diving in 2019. It was one of the best trips of my life, and now I'm already signed up for their Costa Rica dive trip in 2020 with Scuba Adventures. I haven't visited the shop yet, but I can 100% vouch for the new owners--they are knowledgeable divers, good people, and all around amazing.

Jeremiah Perez May - 2020

Owners and staff are professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Allowed me to try backplate and wing set up in the pool. They did not pressure me to buy anything, but gave great information on products and financing options. All in all great staff and would recommend them to anyone!!!

Eric Coulombe August - 2020

Great customer service, from the owners to the employees. Very knowledgeable about everything and anything pertaining to scuba diving. The instructors are highly educated and experienced in scuba diving. They put you through real life scenarios, so you know and understand what to do in the event something happens while you are under water. My family and I learned a lot about scuba diving in a very short amount of time. We will definitely keep taking additional courses with Scuba Adventures as we progress. We definitely reccomend Scuba Adventures to anyone wanting to learn and get scuba diving certified.
