Pack Camping and Webelos Den Overnighters

Cub Scout leaders interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities are

required to have at least one BALOO trained adult on every Cub Scout den or pack overnight

outdoor event - including Pack Camping.

Webelos leaders are required to have taken OWL training or the new BALOO in order to go on a Webelos Den campout.  

The new BALOO has been combined with OWL. The BALOO training now comprises 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 contains introductory and basic information, and must be completed prior to the practical component. The goal of the online portion is to make the best use of time to allow leaders to experience as much as possible during the practical hands-on training.

Successful completion of BALOO training has a positive impact on the confidence level of a Cub Scout Leader, and promotes a willingness to plan a Pack overnighter.

Camping activities and outings that are fun, based on the purposes of Cub Scouting, and successful, often whet the appetite Cub Scouts, parents, and leaders to desire more of the outdoors.

The online portion of BALOO is available around-the-clock on the BSA Learn Center by logging into My.Scouting.orgExternal Link.
