BALOO Training

This one-and-a-half day course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for leaders interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities. BALOO training consists of an online pre-requisite component in addition to an overnight hands on practical. BSA’s Cub Scout level camping policies will be taught along with the discovery of the necessary tools to help units carry our a successful camping experience. Completion of this course is mandatory for a MINIMUM OF ONE adult on a Pack overnighter.!

The new BALOO program is redesigned to better aid leaders trying to have a great time in outdoor activities with their Packs. The first part is an online component, taken at my.scouting.org, which covers the classroom basics of planning and organizing a Pack Campout or outdoor outing. The second part is the hands-on practical camping weekend where participants get to learn the how-to's start to finish of having fun in the outdoors with Cub Scouts. Outdoor elements of the Cub Scout program get special attention. 

Follow the BALOO “plan” and the Cub Scouts in your Pack should have a memorable outdoor camping experience!
