Who says BALOO Training is just for Cub Scout Leaders?  It's not! 

BALOO is the BEST training available for anyone wanting the skills for camping in the great outdoors.  For leaders, BALOO will help you gain confidence to venture outdoors, it's the "outing" in "Scouting"!  For parents, learn skills that will make your families camping experience memorable!  A BALOO camping experience leaves the boys wanting more.

Some of the topics included in BALOO will include:  positive values of camping, outdoor flag ceremonies, outdoor awards that can be earned, Leave No Trace camping, outdoor cooking skills, camping gear, tents & shelters, campfires and campfire program, and first aid. 

The BALOO course is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, 2017, at Cedar Point Scout Camp in Fairmont, MN.  Check in is at 8:30 a.m. with the course beginning promptly at 9 a.m.  BALOO should be done by 5 p.m.

Remember - per National BSA standards, one BALOO trained adult needs to be present at all Cub Scout camping events that your Pack holds.  And the best part - once you complete the class it NEVER EXPIRES!
