    I would like to start a thread like the one in Basic Scuba questions where people post where they went diving today. I would like to limit it to Scout Groups. I think it would be interesting to see how many Troops and Crews are active in this sport. Please post type of unit, unit number and number of youth and the number of adults who participated. Also include the location of the dive and any other comments you would like to make. I will start with our latest dives.

    Great day of diving. Practiced basic skills and reacquainted ourselves with diving after the winter break. :cool3:

    There were about 50 Scouts/Venturers at the inaugural Scuba Jam 2010 held Labor Day weekend at Lake Rawlings, VA. A fun time was had by all. The organizers plan to make it an annual event for Labor Day weekend at Lake Rawlings. The activities were specifically oriented for scouts.

    Where can I find more information about the SCUBA Jam? Sounds like something that could be done in my area.

    The website is Home
    PSUMike was on the organizing committee and was on staff. He can probably give you more details.
    One of the ideas was that Lake Rawlings (a favorite local dive site) is not very crowded during Labor Day weekend so that was designated as the time for the event.

    WOW! That looks like it was an awesome weekend! Thanks for the video link, I will be sending it around to the members of my Crew and Troop. I would definitely like to get something like that started around here.

    We're Crew 512 from Woodland, CA. We currently have 10 active youth (5 male, 5 female, 3 dogs - we're co-species)
    We haven't gone diving yet, but the crew is taking OW lessons in April and our OW dives in May at Monterey, CA So far we have 6 youth who have the books and have paid. One adult (myself) is taking Divemaster to support the group.

    Our planned super adventure is to go to San Diego and dive La Jolla Cove and Shores in August.

    Any suggestions? Thanks for starting this thread
