BALOO training is comprised of two components—an online component and a practical,
hands-on component. Both components must be completed to qualify as a “TRAINED”
Cub Scout outdoor leader.
The online component must be completed prior to the practical component. The online
training contains introductory and basic information that will be built upon during the
practical training. To take the training online, go to http://my.scouting.org and establish an account. If you do not
yet have your membership number, be sure to return to My.Scouting later and sign in or
create an account.
