Cypress Chauve & Nawaganti Districts BALOO / IOLS

Basic Adult Leadership Outdoor Orientation

(For Cub Scout Leaders)

BALOO is designed as an introduction for Cub Scout leaders who are interested in

adding a camping component to their pack activities.  Each Pack is required to have at least one BALOO trained adult on every Cub Scout overnight outdoor event—including pack camping and Webelos Den overnighters.   BSA's Cub Scout level camping policies will be taught along with the necessary tools to help units carry out a successful camping experience.

You MUST complete the BALOO on-line training prior to attending the hands-on training.



Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills

(For Boy Scout Leaders)

This hands-on program gives adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the outdoors. You will set up a campsite, pitch a tent, hike, and cook outdoors—basically all the skills necessary to see the outdoor program of the Boy Scouts of America come to life. This training will ensure that new leaders are proficient in the basic outdoor skills through First Class rank. Leaders will leave the training experience knowing they can show their Scouts how to accomplish outdoor skills while fulfilling rank requirements.
