Event Details

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) Camping is an essential part of Scouting, and BALOO is an essential part of Cub Scout camping. In fact, BALOO trained leadership is required for a Pack or Webelos den camp out. BALOO is an overnight experience filled with practical information for Scouters to lead fun, meaningful, and safe camping experiences for the BSA’s youngest campers.  Training is conversational with a few demonstrations, show-and-tells, and a handful of hands-on work.  It is geared to Cub Scouting.  An optional visit to a local camping store outlet will be available prior to the sessions to participants that have zero experience camping.  Experienced Scouters teach the topics you need for a great program
