      BALOO is only for those folks interested in offering the Pack a chance to go camping. OWLT (Outdoor Webelos Leader Training) is recommended but not required to take your Webelos Den camping. They concentrate on very different issues and one cannot be substituted for another.

        Neither.

        BALOO trains a pack level leader or parent to lead a pack level camping experience, with a variety of aged participants (from 2 year old siblings to parents and grandparents). It covers standards, procedures and planning considerations that in no way apply to a den camping experience. In most cases these events take place with running water, showers, primarily adult cooking, and programming for large groups.

        Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders (known as OWL, WLOT or WOLF) trains Webelos Den Leaders to conduct a den level camping experience with 4th and 5th grade Scouts and their parents. It covers camping and outdoor skills necessary for a den to have a successful campout, relying primarily on the Scouts to set up tents, cook, clean up, etc. In addition, the four Outdoor Webelos Activity badges are covered, and they throw in Readyman as well.

        The events, participants and purposes of these two trainings are very different. One is not a substitute for the other, nor is BALOO a prerequisite for IOLS/WL.
