Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation

What is Baloo training?

The Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) is a day-and-a-half training event that introduces leaders to the skills needed to plan and conduct Pack outdoor activities, particularly Pack camping. BALOO includes information on preparation, site selection, parent involvement, health and safety, equipment, food, and outdoor skills.

A day of fun and learning prepares adults to plan and carry out "entry-level" outdoor experiences. Ask a youth why they want to be a Cub Scout, and nine times out of 10 they'll answer "TO GO CAMPING!!" Cub Scouting has designed BALOO training so that youth, along with their parents or some other adult, can participate in a successful overnight camping experience.

Who should take this training? 

This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a Pack campout, as well as all Webelos and Arrow of Light leaders in charge of Patrol campouts.

Why should I take this training?

In order for your den or your entire Cub Scout Pack to go camping, you must have someone complete the BALOO training course.
