Cub Leader OWL Training now combined with BALOO into one course

New Syllabus for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation(BALOO)

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 and Webelos Den overnighters. BALOO training sets a unit up to carry out a successful camping experience for Scouts.

The new BALOO syllabus is now available at http://www.scouting.org/training/adult.aspx.This new syllabus combines both the Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) and Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders (OWL) previously used into one training curriculum.

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.
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 of 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.org.

The practical, hands on component of the new BALOO syllabus will be presented by the Silver Comet District Training Committee this coming April. Please watch our District website, and website Calendar for information and registration details to be available soon.
