BALOO Training


Who: Cub Scout leaders in charge of the pack's outdoor experiences

What: BALOO training covers topics from health and safety to the logistics of planning and running a successful camping trip for your pack. You’ll learn about program planning, meal preparation and food safety, camping gear selection, water safety,  and campfire program planning, and you’ll get hands on experience with group games, skits and songs, and traditional Scouting skills like pocketknife use and safety, map and compass, knot tying, hiking, and first aid.  

When:  Saturday, May 21, 2022, 9:00AM  to Sunday, May 22, 2022, 11:00AM. The 24 hour course includes an overnight camping experience.
***There will be a Zoom meeting on Wednesday evening, May 18, from 6:00 PM until 8:15 PM to cover the classroom portion of the BALOO syllabus so we can more effectively social distance at the BALOO event itself.
