Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) 2021
Cub Scout Leaders and Parents, learn how to effectively prepare and run fun-filled overnight and outdoor adventures that meet Youth Protection Guidelines and teach Cubs how much fun they can have in the great outdoors. Hands-on sessions include Outdoor Program Planning, Health and Safety, Nature Hikes, Camping Gear Basics, Games, and Cub Scout Cooking.
Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) is offered by the Seneca Waterways Council twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall.
At least one leader is required to be BALOO trained when a Pack holds a Pack camping trip.
Besides being required for a Pack to camp, BALOO is a fun, educational and useful training for keeping Scouts and their families safe when camping.
BALOO is a hybrid course where an online training component should be completed prior to attending the in person course. A copy of the online training certificate should be brought to the in person course in order to be recorded as trained.
The pre-course training can be found through the my.scouting.org website. Just click on "My Dashboard". You will find the course in the Expanded learning section of the Training center.
