Colorado has more SCUBA training companies for an inland state than almost
any other. I can't speak for Colorado Springs, but we worked with Rocky
Mountain Diving Center in Boulder to get our training and open water
certification, and they were very helpful. They train many of the Scouts
and Explorers in this area and the owner Dave Depuy is highly experienced
and excellent to work with Scouts. He may be able to help you and/or
refer you to a good resource in the Springs. He can be reached at
We are probably going to do a certification class some time after the
first of the year on a weekend, so if you and some of your Scouts would
like to get in on that, it could probably be arranged, or if you want to
do one on your own, Dave is very flexible on times and arrangements.
Let me know if I can be of further help.
