BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation)

Is a one-day training event that introduces Cub Scout parents and Den/Pack Leaders to the skills needed to plan and conduct Cub Scout pack outdoor activities, particularly pack family camping.  A day of fun and learning prepares pack leaders to plan and carry out "entry-level" overnight camping experiences. The six-hour BALOO session will give your pack's outdoor activity leader the tools to conduct a safe and successful overnight.  The morning BALOO sessions include the why and how of Cub Scout camping—planning, equipment, meal preparation, and campfire programs. In the afternoon, Cub Scouters rotate among four round-robin sessions—fire safety, stoves, and lanterns; first aid and sanitation; nature hikes and games; and cooking. Scattered throughout the day are plenty of the four S's: songs, stunts, stories, and showmanship. No overnight camping is involved.
