BALOO

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation

BALOO Training

Saturday, Oct. 13th 2012 at 8:30am-5pm

Deukmejian Wilderness Park, 3429 Markridge Road, La Crescenta, CA 91214

WHAT IS BALOO? National BSA camping guidelines give councils the authority to allow Cub Scout packs to conduct pack campout (overnight) activities, as long as the activity is conducted at a council-approved location and is under the direction of a leader in the pack trained to do so.

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO, for short) is that training course.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND? While anyone can attend the training, BALOO participants are generally Cub Scout leaders, but sometimes they’re parents who may not already be part of a pack leadership team. This position is similar to the person in charge of the Pinewood Derby, the Blue & Gold dinner, or other special pack activity. S/he may or may not have already attended This Is Scouting (or New Leader Essentials) Training, but is encouraged to do so. This Is Scouting is available online at http://olc.scouting.org or http://MyScouting.org.


COST: $15 for lunch, facility fees, and handout materials
