Our BALOO training sessions offer hands-on demonstrations on all aspects of Cub Scout camping, including planning, equipment, fire safety, cooking with stoves and lanterns, first aid, nature hikes, games, meal preparation, selecting and setting up an overnight campsite, and an exciting evening campfire program. Plus, here's a must-know: Having at least one BALOO-trained leader is a requirement for any Pack overnight event.
