Keeping older kids active

Following feedback from our holiday clubs, there is a demand for some interesting activities for older children who would no longer need holiday club care but would still enjoy outdoor activities with their peers. Mojo Active is keen to offer ad hoc courses and activities tailored for older children within the school holidays to keep them active and also help them to learn new skills, and where relevant, gain qualifications. We hope to offer a variety of courses but will need sufficient numbers to run them.

Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving at Thornbury pool - Seal team course (11 years +)

A fantastic opportunity to develop new scuba diving skills in a swimming pool and gain a Seal certification from PADI.

This 3 day Seal Team course is specifically aimed at younger divers taking their first dive course, and includes basic scuba skills as well as some dive theory in the form of a manual and DVD combo. The Seal Team course is also a recognised certification, meaning all successful participants will receive a certification card from PADI, showing they’ve reached that level. It also opens up future dive opportunities, and counts towards an Open Water Diver certification should they choose to progress into more scuba as they grow older. There will be some time spent at Mojo prior to leaving for the Thornbury Leisure Centre pool.

“My normally sofa-sitting teenage son really enjoyed the Mojo kayak course - it's so great to have a holiday option for older kids which isn't deemed "uncool"! Thanks so much Mojo”
