Kids Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving experiences for the kids. PADI (professional association of dive instructors) and Scouts America have developed an experience for kids to experience what it would be like to Scuba Dive. The experience is held at a local swimming pool and lasts a couple hours. We provide all training and materials, all certified equipment needed to do this. For some it becomes a starter to full training courses, others just the satisfaction of the experience. However, for all a wonderful time.

We are also a certified and insured First Aid Training Center and would like to offer those services to your school program as well.

Encounters with Canada

It sounds very interesting and is only for students aged 14-17, one week in Ottawa, every week, all year long.

Spend a week with Encounters with Canada - Canada's largest youth forum! Every week of the school year, 120 to 148 teens from across Canada (ages 14-17) come to Ottawa, where they discover their country through each other, learn about Canadian institutions, meet famous and accomplished Canadians, explore exciting career options, develop their civic leadership skills and live an extraordinary bilingual experience. Over 92,000 youth have lived the EWC experience, so far!
