BALOO Training - For Cub Scout Leaders
Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation is the outdoor training orientation for Cub Scout Leaders and parents of Cub Scouts. This training is designed to present Cub Scout camping skills in a format leaders can use to teach to scouts. Topics include, but not limited to: simple camping meals, campfires and story telling, how to pitch a tent, and equipment choices. Each Pack is required to have a BALOO trained leader if they wish to do overnight camping (Cub World and day camps are excluded).
IOLS - For Webelos, Arrow of Light & Scouts BSA Leaders
The Chippewa Valley Council invites you to participate in the Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills Training (IOLS). This fun-filled program of hands-on outdoor training is designed for Scout leaders to help master basic camp skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class and for Webelos leaders to take Webelos dens on overnight camping outings.
Sessions will include how to set up camp, cook, work with hand tools, ropes and knots, first aid, campfire program planning, map reading and compass skills, hiking and packing techniques, nature identification, and Leave No Trace. Each outdoor session will bring to life the pages of the Scout Handbook to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to yourself and the youth you serve. IOLS will help to increase your comfort level and give you confidence as a trained, skilled leader. This training will give you the opportunity to work with other Scout leaders from our council, meet new friends, and reinforce skill teaching techniques with fellow unit leaders.
