2022 BALOO: Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation Pt. 2
BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) is a 1.5 day introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for units interested in offering a camping component to their Pack activities. This training consists of an online prerequisite component, plus an in-person overnight camping experience that provides hand-on practical skills. BSA’s Cub Scout level camping policies are taught along with the discovery of the necessary tools to help units conduct a successful camping experience. If you plan to take your cub pack on an overnighter, at least one leader on the outing needs to have completed this course.
BALOO training includes an introduction to outdoor camping skills as well as important BSA rules and policies to be followed on any Cub Scout campout.
Come spend some time at camp filled with Fellowship and an opportunity to sharpen your scouting skills. This class covers all the information needed to plan and execute a pack overnight. Learn about basic skills, proper planning, scheduling, program suggestions, camp cooking with different types of equipment, and lots more! Speak with fellow scouters and get ideas for future outings, ask questions, and share your experiences with others. Don't forget.... every pack needs a BALOO trained leader. One is good but TWO is even better!
The training will take place at Rainbow Council Scout Reservation, 2600 N. Winterbottom Road, Morris, IL.
Both sessions start at 8:00 AM on Saturday morning and ending by 12:00 PM on Sunday afternoon. Meals from Saturday Lunch through Sunday Breakfast are included.
