2023 Fall BALOO
BALOO is a fun, exciting and required training for all those in your Pack who are in charge of conducting a Pack family campout. It is recommended that each Pack have at least two BALOO trained adults.
What is BALOO?
BALOO stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation. It’s designed to introduce Cub Scout leaders to the opportunities for pack overnight camping.
This is an energetic training that will cover everything you need to know to plan and run a pack overnighter. It’s more than just camping—it includes ideas for outdoor activities, games and ceremonies; information on selecting and using camping equipment; how to run a campfire program; and hands-on Cub Scout & Webelos cooking demonstrations! In short, everything you need to know to make your pack overnighter a fun, successful event!
Why do I need BALOO?
BSA has made a number of changes to the camping policy for Tigers, Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts. Besides participating in council camps (day camp, resident camp), packs may now organize overnight campouts for Cub Scouts and their families. Adults leading a pack overnighter must attend BALOO training.
