Having trained leader is very important.  Some leaders are changing positions in the fall.  If a leader in your Pack is changing position, turn in the application once they have completed training for their new position so the records reflect the correct information.

For a Pack to go camping, there must be someone in the Pack on the trip that is Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) trained.  The district is offering a fall course to help you prepare for camping in the spring so you have someone trained in case your Pack’s current person is transferring. It is recommended that every Pack have 2 or 3 trained people.  The training is schedule for October 21 at Bayside Presbyterian Church.
