BALOO stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation. It’s designed to introduce Cub Scout leaders to the newly expanded opportunities for pack overnight camping.

 This is an energetic training that will cover 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 Cub Scout cooking demonstrations! In short, everything you need to know to make your pack overnighter a fun, successful event!

Who needs BALOO?

At least one adult on a pack overnighter must have completed Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation to properly understand the importance of program intent, youth protection guidelines, health and safety, site selection, age-appropriate activities, and sufficient adult participation. All adult Cub Scouters can use the information and skills they’ll gain from BALOO.
