Dear Kids Sea Camp,

Last winter, as I was beginning to plan my annual summer dive trip, I encountered some roadblocks. As a single divorced mother of an eight year old boy, I had the problem of making sure he would be cared for, while I was away. His father recently moved out of state and was inaccessible. My parents, 74 and 84, offered to watch my son, but admitted it was becoming more difficult to entertain an active boy for an entire week…especially with no other kids in the neighborhood to play with. When I logged onto the Kids Sea Camp web site, I immediately contacted Margo. I soon received the information packet and knew that I had found the solution to my problem.

When I go on a dive trip, I dive….as much as I can. For me, it’s a once a year endeavor that I literally submerge myself in. How could I be a mother and dive at the same time? I decided that attending Kids Sea Camp would provide the answer. By week’s end, I had logged thirteen dives, made friends with several other divers and had quality vacation time with my son. While I was diving, my son had great instruction with well planned daily activities. He was well cared for and made friends while at KSC. The additional bonus to KSC Curacao, was having access to the Curacao Sea Aquarium and the dolphin interactions at Dolphin Academy.
