Join us for BALOO January 18th!

BALOO is Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation. It introduces Cub Scout leaders to pack overnight camping. Whether you’re an experienced camper or an outdoor novice, BALOO has something to offer you!

This is an energetic training that covers everything you need to know to plan and run a pack overnighter. It’s more than just camping—it includes ideas for outdoor activities, games and ceremonies; information on selecting and using camping equipment; how to run a campfire program; and hands-on (er, paws-on) Cub Scout cooking demonstrations! In short, everything you need to know to make your pack overnighter a fun, successful event!

Why do I need BALOO?

Packs may hold overnight campouts, but at least one adult leading the outing must be BALOO trained. (Guide to Safe Scouting). You do NOT have to be a registered leader to attend... just interested in giving your Cub Scouts a great campout experience. Come learn better ways to prepare for a fun and safe outing that everyone (including YOU) will enjoy!
