Fall Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation

Event Details

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation


Who should take this training?

Any Cub Scout adult leader or adult who will go on Cub Scout Den or Pack outdoor events - including Pack camping overnighters and Webelos Den overnight camping.

Why should I take this training?

Many Cub Scouts want to do stuff outdoors, including camping. It's probably why they joined in the first place! In order for your den or your entire Cub Scout Pack to have an outdoor activity or go camping, you must have at least one adult leader who has completed the Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (also referred to as BALOO) training course.

What does this training entail?

BALOO Training is made up of two parts: an online course available on and an in-person, hands-on course. You must complete both parts to qualify as a trained outdoor Cub Scout leader. The hands-on course involves learning about:

· Overnight camping*

· Cooking

· First aid

· Campfire building

· Hiking

· Aquatics

· and much, much more.

*Prepare to actually camp overnight (after all, that's the focus of this course - camping!)
