Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

C32 - Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

BALOO is the Cub Scout leader training required for any Cub Scout den or pack outdoor event, including pack camping overnighters and Webelos den overnighters.

This training should be presented by council or district level training teams as needed. Councils may decide to require periodic refreshers based on local situations. BALOO training has two components—an online component and a practical, hands-on component. Both components must be completed to qualify as a “TRAINED” Cub Scout outdoor leader.

The online component must be completed prior to the practical component. The online training contains introductory and basic information that will be built upon during the practical training.

NOTE:

As part of a two-part blended learning format, the on-line modules are the first step to become BALOO trained. The on-line training modules contain introductory and basic information that will be built upon during the practical training that is completed during an in-person, council instructed course. The on-line component must be completed prior to the practical component and the course facilitator should check this before allowing enrollment into this part of the course.

The in-person syllabus is facilitated by the council training committee and the syllabus must be followed to include the overnight portion of the training. Otherwise the training code will not be awarded.
