Cub Scout Leader Training

Training is available for all Cub Scout leaders - from Cubmasters to den leaders to committee members.

When am I Considered Trained?

Being a "trained" Cub Scout leader includes three main requirements: Youth Protection Training, Position-Specific Training and Hazardous Weather Training.

Youth Protection Training

All adults in ANY position in Scouting must complete Youth Protection training. Youth Protection is also highly recommended for any Scout parents or adults who may assist at the pack or den level, even if they are not registered. Youth Protection training must be completed every two years in order to remain valid. Training can be done online at My.Scouting.org, or it can be completed in a group setting. Learn more about Scouting's Youth Protection guidelines and its barriers to abuse at www.Scouting.org/YouthProtection.

Position-Specific Training

Each adult leader position in Cub Scouting has its own specialized training to get you on the fast track to leading an energetic group of Scouts! These basic training courses can be taken online at My.Scouting.org. See below for a list of position-specific training available for Cub Scout leaders.

What's Next?

Go beyond the basics to learn more about Scouting and how to be an effective Cub Scout leader! Some courses are available online while others are available in-person.

  • Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation - BALOO
    ​This one day course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for those leaders who are interested in adding a camping component to their pack activities. BALOO is an instructor-led course which is conducted at the Council level. BSA's Cub Scout level camping policies will be taught along with the necessary tools to help units carry out a successful camping experience. Completion of this course is mandatory for at least one adult on a pack overnighter.

Advanced Leader Training Courses
