You may have heard and seen the news stories about young children, ages 8 and up, going Scuba Diving as part of a Scuba Ranger program. Now, Long Islands premier diving school is offering a local Scuba Ranger program.
The program consists of five 2-hour pool sessions. Each session gives the kids a chance to have fun and learn about the wondrous underwater world. The Scuba Ranger kit gives kids a video to watch and a manual to have fun with. A big part of this program is making the learning fun. With each session your child receives another level of recognition of achievement. As your child progress in the program they are not only learning about Scuba Diving, but also about many important things that will help in everyday life. They learn about rules. Following the rules is an important part of being a safe Scuba diver. They will learn about the importance of working with others. When every diver goes diving, they always go with a buddy. They will learn about keeping track of their equipment and taking care of it. They will learn about self-control and how to deal with problems that might come up. They will learn to understand and appreciate how important our underwater world is to all of us.
If this sounds like a lot to learn Ė it is. But we will make it fun.
