I am 18 years old, and there have always been other divers my age to dive and hang out with, and I really enjoy scuba diving with my own family. The memories that have left lasting impressions in my mind are countless. In Fiji,Tom Peyton and I had the best time after shark diving.We would entertain families in the afternoons with volleyball; in the evenings, I played the guitar andTom sang which got everyone else singing and dancing too.

proper buoyancy techniques and how important being a role model for marine conservation is. I signed up for a digital photography course, which focused on good buoyancy, as well as the PADI rescue diver course to improve my first-aid skills and be a better dive buddy. In 2016, I became a PADI PRO dive master during the Buddy Dive Bonaire KSC event. I learned the science behind diving, how to guide underwater, how to assist divers in distress and how to teach it all. The second way KSC has enriched my life is through the friendships I have made around the world with the staff instructors, guest speakers, educators and, of course, traveling families.

Kids Sea Camp (KSC) has been the greatest family-adventure vacation I have ever been a part of. It is scuba- diving trips for families that love the ocean and love to travel. It’s like nothing else I have ever experienced. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing young kids learn to dive with their parents and siblings.These trips have enriched and changed my life greatly because I have become a more confident diver and grown so much closer to my own family. One way KSC has enriched my life is through improving my diving skills with each trip. My first family event was Grand Cayman where I learned 803-419-2556 email:
