IOLS - Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills

This course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Topics include: setting up a campsite, pitching a tent, hiking, outdoor cooking - all the skills necessary to see the outdoor program of the BSA come to life. The skills sessions presented in this course closely follow the Boy Scout Handbook and are meant to serve as initial training for adults. By using these skill sessions in conjunction with the Boy Scout Handbook, new leaders become to understand basic outdoor skills through the First Class rank. Back home, leaders should feel comfortable working with and instructing their Scouts - from pitching a tent to starting a cooking fire. They should feel confident in helping their youth leaders plan and carry out their own unit campouts using these skills. Participants experience the patrol method.

OWL - Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders:

This course is designed to help Webelos leaders enhance the outdoor program for the Webelos Scouts in their den by teaching some basic outdoor skills as well as skills needed to complete several of the Webelos activity badges. Completion of this training is required before a Webelos den can go on a campout.

BALOO - Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation

This course, for Cub Scout leaders, introduces participants to the skills needed to plan and conduct Pack outdoor activities, particularly pack camping. This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a pack campout and it is required that at least one adult per pack complete BALOO training in order to apply for a tour plan.
