BALOO graphicBasic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

BALOO is the Cub Scout leader training required for any Cub Scout den or pack outdoor event, including packing 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 and to receive the BALOO recognition patch. The online component contains introductory and basic information and must be completed prior to the practical component at The practical component is an overnight outdoor camping experience that takes about 16-hours to complete. A minimum of one BALOO trained adult must attend every pack overnighter. 



IOLS graphicIntroduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (IOLS)

Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank. Along with basic training, this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in troops in order to be considered trained. The training is a Course Orientation session followed by a camping weekend to learn practical hands-on skills.
