BALOO is a 2 day training course that teaches leaders skills needed to carry out a Pack successful family/Den campout. BALOO training is required for at least one adult leader of a Pack to do overnight camping as a part of the Pack’s activities.

At least one adult who has completed this course must be in attendance at any Pack or Den overnight activity. This course has two parts. The first is available online and the second part is the outdoor experience (this class).

Covid Considerations

-While we will try to have participants distanced as much as possible, there will be some group work and hands on instruction.
-Handwashing stations will be available to you at all times, please use them frequently.
-We encourage all participants to get a COVID-19 vaccine, especially those at high risk. For those that cannot receive a vaccine we encourage taking a test before attending.
-We will screen you for symptoms when you arrive and you will be asked to leave if you are symptomatic. We ask that anyone feeling sick does not attend the training and contacts our office.
