This training introduces Cub Scout leaders (and parents!) to the skills needed to plan and conduct Pack level outdoor activities, particularly camping! Each Pack should have more than one BALOO trained Scouter! This is an OUTDOOR, OVERNIGHT TRAINING, check weather reports, plan and dress accordingly, and read “WHAT TO BRING” on the registration flyer that is downloadable from this site. To help keep the cost reduced, please bring something to share for cracker barrel snack Friday night and a bag lunch for Saturday. You and your den will plan and prepare your own breakfast; dinner will be provided for Saturday night!
