A BALOO trained leader is required for every Pack camping event.

This is a one-and-a-half-day course designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program combining both indoor classroom work with some hands-on outdoor program ideas. All are designed to ensure our leaders are trained in influencing growth in positive ways to achieve the aims and purposes of the Boy Scouts of America.

Your experience will begin with pitching your own tent prior to the 6:30 pm opening ceremony. You will be camping in Sioux campsite. A list of suggested equipment is attached. We will open the camp gates at 5:30 pm to allow participants to set up their tent during the day light. Please eat before coming as dinner is not provided, however we will have a late cracker barrel (snacks).

Interested adult leaders must pre-register by September 7, 2018 and take the online Pre-requisite component before arrival to camp. Uniform for the day is Field Uniform/Class A. It is important for everyone to "hold up their end" of the training to ensure a quality training event for all.

Cost covers Friday night cracker barrel, Saturday breakfast and lunch, handouts, use of camp, snacks, training cards, program materials, and registration.
