Roundtable is a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at the unit level. The objectives of roundtables are to provide leaders with program ideas; information on policy and events; and training opportunities. It is a forum for sharing experiences and enjoying fun and fellowship with other Scout leaders. When skillfully executed, the roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

Introduction to Leadership Skills - IOLS

Along with Scoutmaster Specifics, this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops in order to be considered "Trained."

Impeesa District invites you to participate in Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, a fun filled program of hands-on skills training in the outdoors, designed to help you master basic camp skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class.

Instructors will help you learn how to set up camp, cook, work with wood tools, about ropes, planning campfire programs, map reading and compass skills, hiking and packing techniques, nature identification and outdoor ethics.

Each outdoor session will bring to life the pages of the Scouts BSA Handbook to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to yourself and the youth you serve.  It will increase your comfort level and give you confidence as a trained, skilled leader.  The program will also give you the opportunity to work with other Scout Leaders from your area, meet new friends and reinforce skill techniques with fellow unit leaders.

You will need a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, toiletries, camp chair, closed toe shoes, pen, paper, Boy Scout Handbook, coat, and rain gear and an open mind is all that is needed.  (Gear list will be sent to all participants)

10/26 - 10/27 - Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) Training

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

This is the introductory training Cub Scout Leaders should complete before taking Cub Scouts on an overnight camping trip.

Recent updates to this two-part course make the content more impactful, useful and convenient.

The new BALOO combines the previous BALOO and a course called Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders, or OWL.

Who should take BALOO?

The BSA requires that you have at least one BALOO-trained adult on every Cub Scout Den or Pack overnight outdoor event.  That includes pack camping and Webelos den overnighters.

A BALOO-trained leader should be at any overnighter regardless of whether it is a pack, District or Council event.

Having at least one BALOO-trained adult will make your Cub Scouts' camping experience as awesome as it can be.

Why should I take BALOO?

Leaders who complete BALOO training are better prepared to plan Den or Pack overnight events.

You'll learn how to make camping activities and outing fun.  You'll discover how to keep your Cub Scouts safe and entertained.  And you'll learn how to plan an event that rooted firmly in Cub Scouting's Principles.

Successful experiences in the outdoors make Cub Scouts - and their parents - more likely to keep coming back.

How do I take BALOO?

BALOO consists of two components:  online and hands-on.  You'll need to complete both in order to qualify as a "Trained" Cub Scout Outdoor Leader and receive the BALOO recognition patch.

1. Online Component:  The online portion of BALOO is available 24/7 on the BSA Learning Center. Just log in to to begin.  The goal of the online portion is to make the best use of time to allow leaders to experience as much as possible during the practical hands-on training.
2. Practical, Hands-on Component:  This 1.5 day course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout Outdoor Program for leaders interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities.

You will need a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, toiletries, camp chair, closed toe shoes, pen, paper, rain gear, and an open mind!!!!  (Gear list will be sent to all participants.)
