Suited up and ready to go for the first dive!

 

Nicolet campers over the age of 12  had the unique opportunity to enroll in a TRY SCUBA course offered to us by professionals from Klein Scuba. The Saturday afternoon class had 17 participants including a few Nicolet staff members who wanted to check out the sandy bottom of Franklin Lake.

Head Instructor Phil Klein and his instructors fitted the future divers in their gear and then had them practice various techniques with their masks and regulators in order to feel comfortable underwater. The course took place in the confines of the swim area and some of the Nicolet divers even explored the lake bottom under the RAVE water trampoline! Despite the wind and waves during this particular class, we are fortunate that Franklin is a spring fed lake with generally wonderful clarity…perfect for finding Nemo!
