What is BALOO?
BALOO stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation. It is designed to introduce Cub Scout leaders to the newly expanded opportunities for pack overnight camping. BALOO is required for all Packs planning an overnight campout.
Why Should I Attend?
At least one adult leader must be BALOO trained in order for a Cub Scout Pack to participate in overnight camping. Tour permits will only be issued to Packs who meet the requirements of having attended BALOO training.
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 and BSA approved event!
