Connecticut Scuba Academy has been lucky enough to partner with this unique High school. The Sound School prepares students for college, careers, and life in a focused maritime environment.
CSA is honored to be a BSA participating training center. Complete your certification with us and earn your merit badge in the process! Complete your Open Water Diver certification.
Adventure Club! for kids 8-15 years old.
This program is not just for entertainment; your children will learn about physics, physiology, environment, and the mechanics of diving. As they attend sessions, they will earn real SDI certifications and skills they can use the rest of their lives.
As we face global challenges, we may want to find local ways to make a difference in protecting endangered species, safeguarding water sources and preventing marine debris. Science needs more eyes, ears and perspectives than any scientist possesses.
Enter citizen science: a collaboration between scientists and those of us who are just curious or concerned and motivated to make a difference. Citizen science is the practice of public participation and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge. Through citizen science, people share and contribute to data monitoring and collection programs.
The Meriden YMCA is a pivotal part of our programs and one of the locations we use for the majority of our training. In 2019 we joined with the Meriden YMCA to offer Scuba camp at their Mountain Mist camp center, and we are collaborating on a scuba club to run out of their Main st location.
The Academy is pleased to offer our BSA scuba program at Camp Workcoeman.
Camp Workcoeman is located in the hills of northwest Connecticut in scenic New Hartford and Barkhamsted. The camp consists of approximately 427 acres on the shore of beautiful West Hill Pond, possibly the cleanest in Connecticut.
You can find all legal documents needed to participate in scuba functions for the Scuba Academy. If you are not sure what to fill, out a general liability and medical statement apply to almost everything.
Connecticut Scuba Academy could not exist without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. All of our volunteers bring a wide range of diverse experiences and passions that make us who we are. The one thing that we all have in common is a passion for bringing the joy of Scuba Diving to as many people as possible.

*Please note that at CSA, we take the safety and well-being of our customers extremely serious. As most of our customers are kids, we have several policies in place to ensure that their experience with us is one they will treasure for years to come. All of our volunteers MUST complete Youth Protection Training every two years and MUST submit to a criminal background investigation prior to working with youth. This is for the protection of the youth as well as ourselves.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and expand our programs. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
