BALOO Training is Available

Does your Cub Scout Pack have a great outdoor program? Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) training is specifically designed for any Cub leader who has little camping experience but wants to plan and carry out Pack overnighters, based on Scouting principles. The Guide to Safe Scouting requires at least one BALOO-trained leader for all Cub Scout overnight adventures.

Still Using TLT in Your Troop?

A successful Boy Scout troop is Boy-Led, and employs the Patrol Method, just as Sir Baden Powell intended. If you are an adult Boy Scout leader and need help with, or have questions about implementing Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST), then you should attend this class at the Sweetwater Advance-A-Rama:

Training the Next Generation of Leaders
ILST and Other Scouting Tools for Creating Youth Leaders

ILST replaced Troop Leader Training (TLT) in 2011. The purpose of ILST is to teach Scouts in leadership position about their roles, equip them with the skills needed to fulfill them, and most effectively reach success in them. Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is the first course in a series of leadership training offered to Boy Scouts. More advanced training is available through National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE). ILST is a requirement for these programs and the Kodiak Challenge Trek.

There is no fee to attend this training, and pre-registration is not required. Class size will be limited only by the available space. This training session is scheduled from 12:45PM to 3:00PM, on January 30, 2016, at Berkmar High School, in Lilburn.

Derby Days at the Depot

Cub Scouts and parents! Bring your Pinewood Derby kit to the Home Depot for demonstrations from the pros on using power tools, sanding, painting, and other techniques to put the finishing touches on your cars. Representatives will also help design and cut out cars. There will be four opportunities to attend (all times are 8:00AM to 2:00PM):

  • February 13th at the Buford Home Depot
  • February 20th at the Gainesville Home Depot
