Potomac District Hosts IOLS & BALOO Training

The Potomac District announces the Basic Outdoor Leader Training Course (IOLS) and BALOO for 2019.  These courses are the required basic training for all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Crew Leaders & Cub Leaders.

IOLS:  Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills - Outdoor skills are critical to the success of the Scouting program.  IOLS provides adult leaders with the basic outdoor skills and information needed to run the program right.  The program focuses on skills that build confidence and competence in leaders conducting outdoor camping experiences.  This Training is required for Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters and is also idea for Venture Crew Leaders and WEBELOS Den Leaders and assistants as well as anyone interested in gaining Outdoor Skills. 

BALOO:  stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation.  It's the introductory training Cub Scout Leaders should complete before taking Cub Scouts on an overnight camping trip.

This is a HYBRID course covering both courses together.

Check in will begin at 1:00pm on Saturday.  And training begins promptly at 2:00pm.  Training should end at 5pm on Sunday.  Please make every effort to arrive as early as possible allowing time to prepare campsites.  All meals will be prepared by the students as part of the training. All food will be provided.  Participants will be assigned to patrols/dens for the outdoor session.  Leaders from the same unit may not be in the same patrol so plan accordingly.
