BALOO training is required for any pack wanting to do camping and events. This Training is for all Cub Scout & Webelos Leaders.  The goal of the BALOO training experience is to provide you with the necessary skills and confidence to venture into the great outdoors with your Cub Scouts and provide them with a great first-time camping, hiking, or any other outdoor experience.

BALOO will help you gain knowledge of the BSA resources available to help carry out a successful pack camping activity or any other type of outdoor activity and will provide the tools that you need to accomplish the goals for the Cub Scout camping program.  It is very important that the scouts first-time camping experience be a good one – that the young Cub Scouts come home wanting more.  To accomplish this goal, this training will focus on the health and safety of the participants, program planning, and a few basic outdoor skills.

According to National BSA Standards, “Pack overnighters must be organized and led by an adult leader who has successfully completed BALOO training.” Without a BALOO trained adult, packs CANNOT participate in overnight camping except at council sponsored events.  At least one adult from your pack must be BALOO trained to conduct a Pack Campout and must be in attendance at the campout.
