This training is the BEST training for any adult in Cub Scouting; it's really that simple.

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation or BALOO, will help you gain the skills needed to confidently venture into the great outdoors with your Cub Scouts.  Camping puts the "outing" in Scouting and learning the skills needed to hold awesome campouts is a must.

  • Aquatics & Cub Scouts

And of course, how to have fun!
