The Fox Valley Scuba Club (FVSC) is for divers and non-divers alike. The club is comprised of a social organization of people having a wide variety of interests.   A  typical year with FVSC offers many activities. Summer events include family camping/shipwreck diving on the major holiday weekends plus a week long trip to a destination on the Great Lakes. Diving local lakes on any given weekend is common. September brings our annual fund-raiser at Appleton’s October fest. Fall and winter brings new adventures in river and ice diving. The club also rents a local pool for a winter gear checkout dive and family swim. In some years the club takes trips to tropical destinations.  Please join us at our next meeting, held the second Wednesday of the month at the Prime Time Pub, 1150 Valley Rd, Menasha, WI.
