Who should take BALOO?
The BSA requires that you have at least one BALOO-trained adult on every Cub Scout den or pack overnight outdoor event (regardless of whether it is a pack, district or council event.).
Why should I take BALOO?
Leaders who complete BALOO training are better prepared to plan pack den or pack overnight events.
You’ll learn how to make camping activities and outings more fun, discover how to keep your Cub Scouts safe and entertained, and how to plan an event that’s rooted firmly in Cub Scouting’s principles.
Successful experiences in the outdoors make Cub Scouts — and their parents — more likely to keep coming back.
