When 2 kids are playing William Tell and one kid gets a hatchet buried in his skull instead of the apple, the fact that you declared Im not responsible isnt going to fool anybody. In all cases, bzloo youth participant is responsible to a specific adult.

I haloo with everyone. If you have found a public campground facility that meets the BSA Mandatory Standards as listed on the Bbaloo Overnighter Site Approval Form that is NOT listed below you may complete and submit the form to the Council and once approved the facility will be added to this page so others may visit and enjoy its amenities.

Bqloo kind of camping isn’t the rugged high adventure outing geared toward older Boy Scouts. If the training is truly not being offered at all, the Council is not complying with its side of the Scouting Contract! I was responding to the comment repeated by Jeffery that we can relieve ourselves and BSA of liability by simply declaring the event to not be a BSA outing and that everybody attending is personally liable for injuries that may occur.

BALOO Approved Camping Sites

This is cut and dried. My original recommendation still stands as far as planning for camps. If the campout is already underway and you cannot cancel the campout from a practical standpoint you cant force people to leaveyou can declare the campout as NO LONGER an officially sanctioned BSA outing.

What do you do? The emphasis is on family fun activities that don’t require lots of advanced outdoor skills. Sign up for a new account in our community. Check out the web sites of your area councils to see where they are holding their training. I ended up taking leaders to another Council for the training; fortunately for us that Council’s boundaries were within somewhat reasonable driving proximity and we were able to do so, but I think we were one of the very few units willing to do that.

Teaching stuff at the Council level isn’t hard and it doesn’t require that much extra work.

BSA health and safety and youth protection guidelines apply. As far as anyone is concerned, only a severe weather event will cancel this baolo.

Rancho Seco County Park. Permits for campouts shall be issued locally. Start bugging your district and council training teams. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. There are 2 major reasons why my council cancels training. On the other two I’d tend toward saying the BALOO trained person ought to be there too, although the wording does not specifically reference webelos dens or lock ins – I’m not fond of twisting the wording to fit your convenience in the lock in scenario I had someone assert that if you sleep in a cabin then that’s a lock in, not camping Contingency plans should have been in place before the day of the camp.

You can’t get trained if there is no one to do the training. Perhaps you can get a special offering bqloo for your unit, then get everyone trained at once. BALOO trains participants to properly understand the importance of program intent, Youth Protection guidelines, health and 3462, site selection, age-appropriate activities, and sufficient adult participation.

I am not sure what you mean by your post. These are pack-organized overnight events involving more than one family from a single pack, focused on age-appropriate Cub Scout activities and conducted at council-approved locations councils use Pack Overnighter Site Approval Form, No. No Baloo training, no outing, go home. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. What do Cub Units do? Tell everyone that training is required. On this latter I think the interpretation is flat-out wrong.

I can’t add anything, so I will echo We used to have none. A day of fun and learning prepares pack leaders to plan and carry out “entry-level” outdoor experiences. Posted February 1, Should they all grind to a halt on overnightes because they don’t have access to the training through their Council? haloo

I’ve received all kinds of interpretations of the BALOO rules, including that “lock ins” don’t count, that it covers only pack, but not webelos den, camping, and that as long as the BALOO individual approves the paperwork they may not have to attend the event.

Posted January 31, Our council even has two scheduled. Remember the other part, too: Jeffrey, may I add yet another to your query? If this is a BSA requirement, the District has an obligation to provide it. Our Council has since rectified that training shortcoming, but still! In the afternoon, Cub Scouters rotate among four round-robin sessions—fire safety, stoves, and lanterns; first aid and sanitation; nature hikes and games; and cooking. You have to make sure everyone understands this and if choose to continue camping, they are personally liable for their Scouts injuries.

But exactly what the local interpretation of the policy will be? A pack camp-out, at a location baloi by the local council, is a great way for families to have fun and build confidence in outdoor skills. Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation is a one-day training event that introduces parents and leaders to the skills needed to plan and conduct pack outdoor activities, particularly pack camping.

The BSA policies are quite clear and they are in place for protection of everyone. Many folks are already in route to the campsite or have already arrived. Scout IslandLake Yosemite in Merced.
