All Cub Scout Leaders:

Is your Pack planning on camping? Who are your trained leaders? Will they be moving on to Boy Scouts in the spring? How many BALOO trained leaders do you have? You need at least ONE BALOO trained leader to take your Pack camping. TWO is better and THREE is even better!  Please be sure to take the BALOO prerequisite course on my.scouting before attending.

All Scouts BSA/Crew Leaders:

Scouting’s outdoor program is a critical part of how the Scouts BSA program develops young leaders. While camping or participating in other outdoor events, your Scouts will challenge themselves to learn skills they’ve never tried before or maybe didn’t think they could do. In doing so, your Scouts will work together as a team to overcome adversity when things don’t go as planned; this is truly the magic of Scouting that no other program does as well.

To safely offer Scouting’s outdoor program, however, you need a certain set of skills and knowledge – and that’s why you’re required to take Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (also known as “IOLS”) Training. You’ll learn how to build a fire, use an axe, cook outdoors, use a map and compass, responsibly care for the outdoors, and much more. Even if you weren’t a Scout as a kid, you’ll come out of this course looking and acting like a seasoned camper. This course, combined with Youth Protection Training and the Scoutmaster Specific Training course, will make you an “fully trained” Scouts BSA leader.
