My troop spent the evening last night discovering SCUBA at Sport Chalet in West Jordan (at Jordan Landing). Since it was our reserved “scout night”, the boys, leaders and a few dads had the whole pool to ourselves. We had a great time and loved watching the boys experience something new and super cool! In fact, we’re already on their schedule to do it again next year!
During our visit, we also learned that scouts can get the Scuba Diving merit badge at Sport Chalet at a discounted price! Here’s what their flyer reads:
Get your SCUBA Merit Badge!
Completion of PADI’s Open Water course is one of six steps
for a scout to earn a scuba diving merit badge.
Most of these steps the scout will complete with their counselor:
#1 – First aid for diving-related
illness and injuries
#2 – Swimming merit badge
#3 – Discuss scuba diver’s code
#4 – Open Water certification
#5 – Discuss the underwater ecosystem

Two things to note about this special scout offer:
1) If you plan on completing this badge in December, you do not need to organize a minimum group of six. In other words, you can attend by yourself or with fewer numbers during this month only.
2) If you pay the discounted $123.75 course tuition in December but are unable to attend class this month, you can earn the badge anytime during the year for that price!

You can also bring your scouts to Sport Chalet and have them help you through the Camping merit badge too. This store really does a lot to support the scouts!
