Baloo Training

Put the Outing in Cub Scouting!

Often, one of the big reasons kids and their families join Cub Scouts is the chance to get into the outdoors. Overnight camping is one of the most exciting, popular events on the Pack calendar. But in order to make that happen, Pack leadership has to be trained...not just in the practicals of how to camp, but in how to run a camping program that fits into the Cub Scout program as a whole.

  • Who can attend BALOO Training:
     - Any Pack leader
     - Any Pack parent who'd like to help by taking on the role of Outdoor Event Coordinator on the Pack Committee
     - Bear-About-To-Be-Webelos den leaders who'd like to be able to take their Webelos den camping.

  • When: October 6-7, 2023; check-in Friday 6:30PM(eat prior to attending, course starts at 7pm). We'll be camping on-site overnight, making a very full day of Saturday, and ending Saturday by 5PM
  • Where: Cathedral of the Rockies, Amity Campus, 4464 Maple Grove Rd, Boise 83709
  • Cost: $20. includes breakfast, lunch, and campfire “Cracker Barrell”, along with the course materials
  • Why: Because a successful outdoor experience with Cubs and their families doesn’t happen by accident, and there are a lot of things you need to know to run a safe, enjoyable experience within the BSA’s guidelines
