BALOO - first district course yesterday
- Dear fellow Scouters:
Island District's Cub Leader Training Team presented BALOO yesterday
for the first time. What a great curriculum! I think the trainers
learned as much as the participants.
We had about 14 people there (average for our district trainings) and
we got some great feedback from the group. There were some things
that individuals didn't like but overall a positive outcome. We had
a wide range of experience - from moms and dads who have never camped
to experienced outdoorsmen who've been camping since they were knee-
high to a grasshopper.
We found that Health & Safety and Program didn't take the entire time
allowed. So we had a great Q&A session after Health & Safety and got
out a little earlier than planned. I am sure that the Program
presentation could be beefed up and really presented in a fun way (I
was outside getting ready for the Cub Cooking section during part of
We also found that we had to be really flexible around lunch since we
did the foil dinners. When they were ready, we stopped right where
we were (amazingly at the end of a presentation) and ate, then picked
up where we left off.
Everyone's favorite part - the Camp Doughnuts during round robin!
