BALOO - Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation

February 27, 2021 - 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (central) Stanley Youth Building, Reservoir Rd, Stanley ND (on Google it appears as Boat Launch)

Registration

BALOO is the introductory training Cub Scout leaders must complete before taking Cub Scouts on an overnight camping trip. Recent updates to this two-part course make the content more impactful, useful and convenient. 

Who Should Take BALOO?

The BSA requires that you have at least one BALOO - trained adult on every Cub Scout den or pack overnight outdoor event. We strongly recommend 2 in the pack at any time. 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. Having at least one BALOO trained adult will make your Cub Scouts’ camping experience as awesome as it can be.

How do I complete BALOO training?

BALOO consists of two components: online and hands-on. You’ll need to complete both in order to qualify as a “Trained” Cub Scout outdoor leader and receive the BALOO recognition patch.

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.
 

Practical, hands-on component: This 1-day course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for leaders interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities. That is what we are offering on February 27th.
