BALOO Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation training course.

A day of fun and learning that prepares pack adults to easily plan and safely conduct outdoor Cub Scout family adventures. Per current BSA requirements, one BALOO-trained adult is required for any pack family camping event. No exceptions!

BALOO sessions include the why and how of Cub Scout camping – planning, equipment, meal preparation, and campfire programs. Included in this course is a round-robin session covering: fire safety, stoves, and lanterns; first aid and sanitation; nature hikes and games; and cooking.

Pre-registration is required (no walk ons) so staff can effectively prepare program materials in a cost efficient manner.  Registration includes lunch, insurance, jokes and all program materials.

This Boy Scouts of America national training course is open to any registered adult from any district or council.
