You asked for it and now we have it. One course. One day. Two fantastic learning experiences. Any adult who has an interest in camping and learning outdoor skills can take this course. Designed for leaders who are in charge of Pack and Webelos overnight activities, this course covers the rules, guidelines, and safety considerations for “Pack Family Camping” and “Webelos Campouts”. It teaches the why and how of Cub Scout camping; planning, equipment, meal preparation, fire safety, stoves, and lanterns; first aid and sanitation; nature hikes, games, and campfire programs. Participants will receive both BALOO and OWLS certification. Local Tour Permits require that a Pack must have a BALOO-certified adult leader attend Cub Scout Campouts and overnight activities.
This is a great course for Tiger, Cub or Webelos parents who have little or no camping experience. Itis an entry level outdoor training with emphasis on outdoor activities and skills pertaining to and geared toward Cub Scout camping and outdoor experiences.

A few changes for the 2014 year:
This year each Scout attendee will receive a commemorative 2014 Pinewood Derby Patch! Oooh, aaah, special!
The Staten Island Mall has moved us to the courtyard outside of the JC Penney store, not in the center court as in years past. Please let your Scouts know and make announcements during your Den Meetings.
This training course is designed to meet the needs of Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and interested Troop Committee Members, Parents, Webelos Den Leaders, Commissioners, and new adult leaders. Leaders will all benefit from this informative and hands-on program. The outcome and goal of the program is to help you offer the best possible program to the boys in your Troop. The training session will give you the practical skills you need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors, and help you master basic camp skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class.
