Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (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.

  • Learn how to plan and run a Pack overnighter!
  • Learn outdoor activities, games, and ceremonies you can incorporate into your outdoor program!
  • Learn how to run a campfire program!
  • Participate in hands-on Cub Scout cooking demonstrations!

BALOO training is comprised of two components—an online component (60-90 minutes) and a practical, hands- on component at Belk Scout Camp. Both parts must be completed to qualify as a “TRAINED” Cub Scout outdoor leader. The online component contains introductory content and must be completed prior to the practical (outdoor) component.

The practical component is a 1-1/2-day training event held at Belk Scout Camp. Participants will be expected to spend a night in a tent. Meals are included. A complete list of equipment will be provided upon registration.
