BALOO: Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation Spring
Welcome to BALOO training! It is the Cub Scout leader training required for any Cub Scout den or pack outdoor event, including pack camping overnighters and Webelos den overnighters. Come join us for a weekend of camping and learning at Camp Rokilio! This fun and informative course includes much outdoor learning, camping, knife safety, GPS, hiking, cooking, and more! Beyond outdoor skills we teach fun programming tips, ceremonies, and how to put on memorable campfire programs. Get a hands on learning experience about what it means to be a Cub Scout.
Completion of the BALOO course is required for at least ONE leader or parent in a Pack who attends any overnight programming including: Webelos campouts, family camps, museum overnighters, EAA sleepovers, Zoo campouts, etc. (Did we give you any good ideas?) The cost is $55 per adult which covers food and facilities.
BALOO training is comprised of two components—an online component and a practical, hands-on component. Both components must be completed to qualify as a “TRAINED” Cub Scout outdoor leader. The online component must be completed prior to the practical component. The online training contains introductory and basic information that will be built upon during the practical training.
