BALOO is a fun and exciting training experience for all Cub Scout leaders. When your pack goes camping, at least one leader at the event must be BALOO-trained. By completing this course you will: understand the focus of the Cub Scout level of the BSA camping program; acquire the skills and confidence necessary to plan and carry out a successful, first-time Cub Scout-level camping activity; learn about resources available to help; and understand the requirements for safe BSA outdoor activities, based on national standards. This overnight training will allow you to learn and practice basic camping skills, equipment, fires and outdoor cooking, knife safety, knots, program planning, health and safety considerations, and other outdoor skills that are central to the Cub Scout outdoor program.

Cost: Free to adult leaders registered with packs in Mayflower Council (the annual activity fee on Scout registrations in our council helps to cover the cost of providing leader training). $30 for out-of-council members.

This version of the course will start on Saturday morning. We will have you on your way home by noon on Sunday.

Pre-registration is required so the volunteer staff can purchase and prepare the right amount of food and supplies. No walk-ins.

Registration will close on Monday, April 26, 2021.
