2022 Fall BALOO/IOLS Training at Camp Hinds
BALOO & IOLS Training
October 14-15, 2022 at Camp Hinds
Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation Training (BALOO)
BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation Training) is the Cub Scout leader training required for any Cub Scout den or pack campout, including pack camping overnighters and Webelos den overnighters. Packs are required to have at least 1 BALOO trained leader in attendance at every campout.
BALOO training is comprised of two components—an online component and a practical, hands-on component. Both components must be completed to qualify as a “TRAINED” Cub Scout outdoor leader.
The online component (available on my.scouting.org) must be completed prior to the practical component, in order to make the best use of time to allow leaders to experience as much as possible during the practical hands-on training.
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS)
IOLS is the Outdoor training component required to be trained as a Scoutmaster/Asst Scoutmaster. The course will lead the participant through the Be, Know and Do’s of how to deliver instruction in a youth-led BSA unit.
