BALOO Training

Attention Cub Scout Leaders: Now your Pack can plan outdoor camping activities IF one or more of your leaders are BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) trained! Yes, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos will be able to participate in overnights and Pack outdoor camping activities with a BALOO trained leader in attendance!

BALOO offers Pack leaders instruction in health and safety, planning guidelines, outdoor activities, outdoor cooking, and campfire programs. Follow the BALOO “plan” and the Cub Scouts in your Pack should have a memorable outdoor camping experience!

BALOO is the first step in outdoor training for Pack leaders teaching skills and techniques to share with boys in the Cub Scout program. The second step for Pack leaders is the Webelos Leader Outdoor Training (OWL) which teaches skills for the Webelos program. Webelos Leaders moving with their boys to a Boy Scout Troop should be looking at the Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills training.
