Event description

Description

BALOO stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation and is a Cub Scout Adult training required for Packs to go on family campouts. Each Pack must have at least one person with BALOO training in attendance at campouts, but it is recommended that units have several trained leaders. The training focuses on how to incorporate outdoor elements into the Cub Scout program and creating family camping experiences that are safe and fun! BALOO has a prerequisite online training course called BALOO Prerequisite Training available through https://my.scouting.org/.

IOLS stands for Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills and is a Boy Scout Adult training and required for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters. IOLS training focuses on using the patrol method, scout leadership roles, and incorporating fun outdoor elements in a Troop camping experience. IOLS has a prerequisite online training course called SCO_800 Hazardous Weather Training. Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters are considered trained when they have completed Youth Protection Training, Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training and IOLS.

BALOO and IOLS are separate training courses that are being held at the same venue in order to take advantage of their similar training structure and requirements. For more information contact Paul Spraggins at 682-225-3471 or paul.spraggins01@gmail.com.
