Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation is a training event that introduces parents and leaders to the skills needed to plan, conduct and run a safe and fun Cub Scout campout. 

This training is required for any adult in charge of planning a pack campout, and it is recommended that two adults per pack complete BALOO training. BSA requires a cub scout leader to complete BALOO Training before taking Cub Scouts camping.

BALOO will cover the following areas:

  • Preparations for camping with Cub Scouts
  • Site selection
  • Parent involvement
  • Health and Safety
  • Equipment preparation
  • Meal planning
  • Introduction to Outdoor Skills
This training is REQUIRED for any Pack that wants to go camping outside of a District or Council event. At least ONE BALOO trained adult leader must be present on Pack campouts. However, we recommend that a Pack brings along two BALOO-trained leaders in case one has to leave for an emergency.

Examples:
  • Fall Family Camping - District, not required
  • Cub Scout Adventure Camp - Council, not required
  • Camping at Unicoi State Park - Pack, BALOO training required
Please contact the training team if you are interested in this training.
