Summer Camps

Malibu Divers offers a number of Camp programs. Theses 5-Day local courses are geared for youth between the ages of 12-18 and to be among their peers.  It also allows youth to attend during the daylight hours and still be able to be with their family during the summer evenings and nights. We encourage parents to car pool during the week.  This course will prepare them for adventure whether it is diving California’s beautiful kelp forests or if you are going on a trip of a lifetime with family and friends.  Students can sign-up for one or both programs as they run sequentially.
