The Great Rivers Council invites you to participate in the Scout Leader Outdoor Orientation (SLOO), a fun-filled program of hands-on skills training in the outdoors, designed to help you master basic camp skills required from Cub Scouts to the rank of First Class in Boy Scouts.

This training satisfies the requirements of B.A.L.O.O. training, Webelos Leader Training and Outdoor Leader Skills.

We will start at 8:00 AM Saturday morning and be finished by 4:00 PM Saturday.

Instructors will give information on planning campouts, help you learn how to set up camp, cook, work with wood tools and about ropes, first aid, planning campfire programs, map reading and compass skills, hiking and backpacking techniques, nature identification, and Leave No Trace. Participants will be treated to a Fantastic Lunch prepared by our staff quartermasters.
Each outdoor session will bring to life the pages of the Webelos and Boy Scout Handbooks to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to yourself and the youth you serve. Along with a campout planning checklist and Tour Plan information, examples of necessary camping equipment will be demonstrated. It will increase your comfort level and give you confidence as a trained, skilled leader. The program will also give you the opportunity to work with other Scout leaders from your area, meet new friends, and reinforce skill techniques with fellow unit leaders.

The attached “What to Bring” checklist covers the personal gear you will need to bring for training. If you do not personally own any of the items listed, please make arrangements to borrow what you need from your unit, fellow leaders, or friends. A Scout uniform should be worn if possible. Missouri weather can be unpredictable, so watch the forecast and be prepared.

If you have any physical limitations, dietary restrictions or medical needs, please list them below so the course leaders can be prepared before the course begins.
Please make arrangements to attend the entire course from 8 AM Saturday to 5 PM Saturday. We will have a FULL SCHEDULE, and you won’t want to miss any of the activities or the fun.
