Yes, you can take your Cub Scouts camping, if you attend this training!  Any Cub Pack that wants to camp MUST have at least one BALOO trained leader on-site, for the entire camp out.  BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) Training is being offered in Guymon, on Saturday, September 26, 2009.  Location is the Victory Memorial United Methodist Church, Sixth & Roosevelt streets.  Sign in begins at 8:30 a.m.  Starting time will be 9:00 a.m.  This is an 8 hour training that will consist of classroom and outdoor sessions.  Who knows what the weather will be like then, so please plan accordingly. More information will follow in a flyer that will be sent out via Constant Contact & is available under the Activities tab, on the Council home page.
