BALOO Training Announcement
Cub Scout leaders interested in adding a camping component to their Pack Activities are
required to have at least one BALOO trained adult on every Cub Scout Den or Pack overnight outdoor event - including Pack Camping and Webelos Den Overnighters. BALOO training sets a
unit up to carry out a successful camping experience for Scouts.
A new BALOO syllabus is now available. This new syllabus combines both the Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) and Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders (OWL) previously used into one training curriculum. This training experience is designed to include an overnight campout.
BALOO training is comprised of two components – an online component, and a practical, hands-on component. Both components must be completed to qualify as a “Trained” Cub Scout Outdoor Leader.
The online component contains introductory and basic information, and must be completed prior to the practical component. 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.
The online portion of BALOO is available around-the-clock on the BSA Learn Center by logging into My.Scouting.org.
