Powhatan/Goose Creek BALOO Training
Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)
BALOO is an outdoor skills training program for the Cub Scout leader or parent, particularly those who are responsible for leading pack overnighters and/or Webelos/Arrow of Light den camping. No camping experience is required or assumed. BALOO training teaches the essential organizing, planning, camp craft, and outdoor safety skills to enable a pack to go camping as a group. BSA policy requires at least one leader with BALOO training on all Cub Scout pack overnighters. BALOO also includes Webelos den campout planning and campsite duties, and the transition to Boy Scouts. Cooking, sanitation, campfires, use of woods tools, orienteering skills, outdoor ethics, equipment, and more will be covered.
