What is BALOO?
Welcome to BALOO training! It is the Cub Scout leader training required for any Cub Scout den or pack outdoor event, including pack camping overnighters and Webelos den overnighters.
BALOO training is comprised of 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.
At least one adult on every pack overnighter must have BALOO certification (except at District and Council events). Camp Rangers cannot allow a Pack to camp without a BALOO certified leader.
