Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

Hidden Valley Scout Reservation
268 Hidden Valley Rd

Introductory training for Cub Scout leaders who will be taking Cub Scouts on an overnight camping trip.  At least one BALOO-trained adult is required on every Cub Scout den or pack overnight outdoor event. That includes pack camping and Webelos den overnighters.  A BALOO-trained leader should be at any overnighter regardless of whether it is a pack, district or council event.  Leaders who complete BALOO training are better prepared to plan pack den or pack overnight events.  You’ll learn how to make camping activities and outings fun. You’ll discover how to keep your Cub Scouts safe and entertained. And you’ll learn how to plan an event that’s rooted firmly in Cub Scouting’s principles.  Online component: The online portion of BALOO is available 24/7 on the BSA Learn Center. Just log in to My.Scouting.org to begin. The goal of the online portion is to make the best use of time to allow leaders to experience as much as possible during the practical hands-on training.  The course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for leaders interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities.
