Cub Scout leaders, we know that school is out and Cub Scouting may be slowing a bit but never stopping. And, with the
approaching Cub Scout year just around the corner already, Packs need to ensure that they have a BALOO trained leader
ready for those coming fall camps.
Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation is the Cub Scout leader introduction to a great outdoor program. It will train
leaders in how to properly and safely conduct an outdoor program. It is also a requirement of each Pack to have at least one
BALOO trained leader in order to conduct camps.
Coming on June 25 the Indian Springs District will be holding a BALOO course at the Bremen Senior Center in Bremen.
The cost is $10 per participant but the training is priceless. Get trained and get ready for the fall and your existing and new
Cub Scouts now. Registration is available on the District Training page.
Popcorn Kickoff and Training
Scout units selling popcorn, don't forget, in order to be eligible for the additional commissions on popcorn sales, each unit
must attend one of the scheduled training events. Coming training dates are June 18 at the Volunteer Service Center and
then on June 21 at West Georgia Tech.
Visit the Council web site to register to attend one of the coming opportunities and get ready to make some money!

More Training Opportunities
The Indian Springs District is working on the calendar for 2016 training opportunities. Please visit the District Training page
within the next few weeks for updates and opportunities.
The National Council has posted the remaining training modules to Scouting U, so now you can complete the entire position
specific training for Cubmaster, Den Leader, and Pack Committee Member online. Visit the myscouting.org site to access the
Scouting U page. Because we do not have any position-specific trainings scheduled for the rest of the year, please consider
taking the time to get your training online before the end of the year. Every Scout deserves a trained leader.
