The first training for a new leader is to:

    • Take Youth Protection (MANDATORY) – every registered
      adult must be re-certified every two years.

Den Leader Position-Specific Training - taught at district or council training courses.

This course is intended to provide Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos den leaders with the information and tools they need to conduct successful den meetings.

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

This one day course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for those leaders who are interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities. BALOO is an instructor-led course which is conducted at the Council level. BSA's Cub Scout level camping policies will be taught along with the necessary tools to help units carry out a successful camping experience.

Completion of this course is mandatory for at least one adult on a Pack overnighter.

The course syllabus is available from your local council or through .

Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders (OWL) - taught at district or council training courses.

This course is designed to help Webelos leaders enhance the outdoor program for the Webelos Scouts in their den by teaching some basic outdoor skills as well as skills needed to complete many of the Webelos activity badges. This course can be taught as a stand-alone experience but is often presented in conjunction with Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS).

As a Roundtable Commissioner and Cub Trainer I have designed a magnetic Uniforming game kit and the answers for an overhead. I use four sets and divide the leaders into 4 groups and let them have fun putting on the patches and pins. If you want a set designed for your council using your Council shoulder strip drop me a line. I will need a clear copy of your strip. (about 300 dpi is great)
