Sea Camp Hawaii – Octopus & Invertebrates

Octopus - Kona, Hawaii

This week-long day camp includes beach excursions, fun in the pool, and shoreline shell collecting!  To safely explore the underwater world, students participate in the PADI Skin Diver program and try SCUBA with the PADI Bubblemaker or PADI Discover Scuba Diving programs.  For kids who love animals, there’s an in-depth study on octopuses, sea stars, shells, shrimp, lobsters, and crabs using John Hoover’s comprehensive book on marine invertebrates Hawaii’s Sea Creatures.  Students participate in the AWARE Kids program from Project AWARE Foundation and do a beach clean up.  Take all six Sea Camps and receive the Jack’s Diving Locker Hawaiian Marine Life Ambassador Award.

A Quick Look at the PADI Medical Questionnaire

Scuba diving is an exciting and demanding activity. To scuba dive safely, you must not be extremely overweight or out of condition. Diving can be strenuous under certain conditions.  Your respiratory and circulatory systems must be in good health. All body air spaces must be normal and healthy. A person with heart trouble, a current cold or congestion, epilepsy, asthma, a severe medical problem, or who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, should not dive. If taking medication, consult your doctor before participating in this program.  The purpose of this Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by a physician before participating in recreational scuba diving. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of a physician.  Please answer the following questions on your past and present medical history with a YES or NO. If you are not sure, answer YES. If any of these items apply to you, we must request that you consult with a physician prior to participating in scuba diving. Your PADI Professional will supply you with a PADI Medical Statement and Guidelines for Recreational Scuba Diver’s Physical Examination to take to a physician.
