BASIC ADULT LEADER OUTDOOR ORIENTATION
Pack Camping has come a long way and it is one of the strongest
reasons why boys join the Cub Scout program.
For a Pack to go camping, there MUST be at least
one registered leader on the outing that is BALOO trained.
BALOO is a 7 hour indoor and outdoor training
which helps with understanding the BSA progressive camping program.
The training reviews guidelines established by the Boy Scouts of America
and the Laurel Highlands Council to help us understand
the value of the outdoor program.
Next BALOO Training Date and location:
2015 Lackawanna District
