Steve Powell from the Crestwood Ward (Team 416) will be leading a group of boys and leaders to be trained (and dive) in Scuba Diving. The group adventure is slated for February of 2016. The larger the number of boys and leaders, the cheaper the overall cost will be. If interested, please contact Steve directly for more details (his contact information can be found in LDS Tools).
Also, if wanting to form your own group, we learned at RoundTable last night that Seattle Scuba (www.seattlescuba.com) offers a 40-50% discount to boy scout groups (6 or more – equipment included), and their main instructor Craig is also a merit badge counselor for the Scuba Diving Merit Badge – click the link above to check them out.

In outlining a plan for the new year, it is also a good time to refresh ourselves on some of the basics of a safe Scouting program. A wealth of information is available to assist Scout leaders in planning safe and exciting activities. Here are some ideas to help you get started…
