This course will be a partial MB and students will be given information on how to easily finish the badge with the instructor.
All interested participants should view the course as a "Discover SCUBA" course even if they don't plan to finish the badge.  
This course is being offered because Scouting is all about new experiences and adventures!

Cancellation Policy
In the case of death of an immediate family member, sickness or injury, or a military transfer we will refund all monies paid for Scouts and/or leaders of fees paid. The district must be informed 2 weeks before the event of such cancellations. You must notify us by sending an email to The Cardinal District strives to provide the very best programs possible. We enter into obligations with our staff and vendors several months before the event. Cancellations during the week of the event undermine our ability to provide our quality program. Reasons such as vacation schedules, school events, and last minute changes of mind are not acceptable reasons for refunds. Scouts who leave during the event will not receive a refund. Request for refunds received after the event is over will not be honored. Yours in Scouting, Cardinal District Leadership
