My name is Greg Parker, and I run a scuba diving school operating across Bristol and would like to be able to offer scuba diving as an activity to more local scout groups.
Scuba diving is a fun, exciting and educational activity. It’s also a perfect activity to run through the winter, as we operate using local indoor heated swimming pools across Bristol all year around. We run regular dives at Thornbury Leisure Centre and Jubilee Pool in Bristol, and can arrange additional pool dives as needed. Our Discover Scuba Dives are two hours long, including a safety and dive briefing, equipment set up and familiarisation and at least an hour in the water with full scuba kit each. During the dive the participants will learn to breathe underwater, practice communication methods and skills used by scuba divers and participate in underwater games.
We can accommodate up to 12 children at each dive, with ages from 8 and above, and are happy to offer any adults or young leaders spaces too if they wish to join in. We also offer group rates for any scout or guide groups booking 6 or more participants for a diving session, to open up the dive sessions to everyone who would like to take part.
In the last few years we have run dive sessions for Scout and Guide groups such as Chipping Sodbury Scouts, 67th Kingswood Scouts, 1st Falfield Scouts, Blenheim Scouts and the 2nd Winterbourne Down Guides. We would love to extend this amazing, educational activity out to more local children, and introduce them to the amazing things they can do and see whilst breathing underwater!
Hidden Depths Scuba School are a PADI Approved Youth Training centre, which means we offer a full range of scuba diving programmes for children, with appropriately sized equipment to make the diving comfortable and enjoyable. We’ve also met strict guidelines for our child protection policy, with staff DBS checked, pool risk assessments and appropriate insurance, both professional and public liability, in place. We are happy to provide any of these documents as needed to ease your planning concerns when working with us as an external provider.
I do hope the scuba diving programmes we can offer are of interest to you and your scout groups. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you further, so please do email back with any questions or a contact number and convenient time to call and we can discuss options.
