Think you have seen all that Skyview Ranch has to offer? Think again.

  This summer, campers will have a one of a kind opportunity to go below the waves and experience Skyview like never before! Skyview Ranch, with our partners at Columbus Scuba, a 5 Star PADI Instructor Development Center, offers students a unique underwater experience, where trained and certified instructors will offer campers, a PADI Open Water Scuba Diver certification. This certification is a lifetime certification and is included in the cost of the special camp. There are 3 components to our open water certification courses:

ACADEMICS - Campers learn the theory behind diving and the principles of scuba.

CONFINED WATER TRAINING - Campers practice the actual sport of scuba diving in a local pool close to camp.

OPEN WATER SESSIONS – Campers spend time at Gilboa Quarry where they have opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned and earn certification. Campers will spend 4 days (Tuesday through Friday) at the quarry located in Gilboa, Ohio (outside Findlay, OH).

Trained diving instructors will show campers how to safely use scuba equipment to explore the world of the deep. Campers will get to enjoy the Skyview experience for the first day, where they will learn the what’s, why’s and how’s of Scuba and gain a greater appreciation for the 80% of God’s creation that lies below the surface.

Sound like your cup of tea? Get registered ASAP.

Learn the necessary fundamentals of diving and legally dive, purchase equipment, buy air, board dive charts and dive resorts and continue your diving experience. The cost includes camper’s books, PADI certification, equipment rental, dive tables, and all check out dives (both confined and open water).
