BALOO Participants:  Prior to taking the practical component, participants must have completed the online component. Both the online and the practical, must be completed in order to fulfill the “BALOO Trained” status. In the event the online component is not completed prior to the practical, the trained status is withheld until both components are successfully completed. The online portion is available through the BSA Learn Center. Log onto and select the BSA Learn Center image on the right side of the home page.

All participants (staff and trainees) will pay a $15.00 fee to cover the cost of a Cracker Barrel Friday evening, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and expendables used in training.  You are on your own for Friday supper.  Please register at the Scout Service Center or online at by Monday Oct. 21st, so that we may purchase sufficient food.  REGISTRATION IS A MUST.
