This is a GREAT opportunity to help your Pack get out and do some weekend camping when the weather warms up. Camping is very important to the Scouting program. Statistics show that boys who camp are more likely to stay in Scouting.
Both courses will be run at the same time on Saturday. There is different material covered for each course. Therefore, leaders must choose one or the other.
BALOO – Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation for Cub Scout leaders is a one-day training event that introduces participants to the skills needed to plan and conduct Pack outdoor activities, particularly pack camping. This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a pack campout, and it is required that at least one adult per pack complete BALOO training in order to apply for tour permits.
OWL – Outdoor Webelos Leader Training is for all Webelos leaders. This training course covers the skills & resources needed to teach the outdoor activity badges and helps to provide good & safe outdoor experiences. Completion of this training is required before a Webelos den can go on a campout.
