Cub Scout BALOO Training
This newly expanded 1 ½ Day BALOO Training Course uses an overnight campout format full of fun and learning to prepare Pack leaders to plan and carry out Cub-appropriate outdoor experiences. The training starts at 6:00pm on Friday and finishes at 5:00pm on Saturday, October 26-27, 2018.
Why Should I Attend?: TO HAVE FUN IN A BEAUTIFUL OUTDOOR SETTING, of course, but also to ensure that your Pack has at least one (preferably two or more) BALOO-trained adults to help plan and carry out Cub Scout camp outs! AT LEAST ONE BALOO-TRAINED LEADER IS A REQUIREMENT FOR ANY PACK OVERNIGHT EVENT. The BALOO training sessions include hands-on demonstration of the why and how of Cub Scout camping — planning, equipment, fire safety, stoves, and lanterns, first aid and sanitation, nature hikes and games, meal preparation, overnight campsite setup and selection, and an evening campfire program.
The key point of BALOO training is “Keep It Simple.” Remember, the overnight is an entry-level outdoor experience for the first-time Cub Scout camper. All arrangements — sleeping, cooking, and program — should be geared to Cub Scout-age boys.
