BALOO  for Cub Scout leaders is a training event that will provide the necessary knowledge and skills for a pack to be able to plan a pack or Webelos/Arrow of Light Den Campout.

It will cover everything you need to know to plan and run an overnighter.  BALOO is 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, hands-on Cub Scout cooking demonstrations, and more!

This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a pack or Webelos den campout and it is required for at least one adult per pack to complete BALOO training in order to plan campouts for Cub Scouts.

Participants attending the training should dress for the weather, as some portions of the training are done outside.  A tent, sleeping bag, and basic camping equipment will be required as an overnight component is part of the course.  This course has an online pre-requisite.  Instructions will be sent to participants upon registration.
