Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)
is an overnight course for Cub Scout Leaders interested in adding a camping outing to their Pack activities. BALOO training consists of an online pre-requisite component in addition to an overnight hands-on practical session at Camp Verdugo Oaks. BSA’s Cub Scout level camping policies will be taught along with the discovery of the necessary tools to help Packs carry out a successful camping experience. Completion of this course is mandatory for a MINIMUM OF ONE adult on a Pack overnighter. The online prerequisite training is available in the BSA Learn Center on My.Scouting.org
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? While anyone can attend the training, BALOO participants are generally Cub Scout leaders, but sometimes they’re parents who may not already be part of a pack leadership team. This position is similar to the person in charge of the Pinewood Derby, the Blue & Gold dinner, or other special pack activity. S/he may or may not have already completed Cub Scout Position Specific Training, but is encouraged to do so. CSPST is available online at My.Scouting.org
