Adult leader training is an integral part of our program, and the Boy Scouts of America would not be the same without it!
If you have taken on the responsibility of a leadership position within your Cub Scout unit, thank you! If you have not already taken the required training, we urge you to do so! This training will give you more tools and resources to make Cub Scouting the best experience possible for our youth!
This training will NOT include BALOO! Those of you who want or need to take BALOO may do so in February (Details of that training will be announced later this year)!
Please refer to the attached flyer for more information!
