BALOO Approved Camping Sites

 
Pack Overnighters

Approval Form

These are pack-organized overnight events involving more than one family from a single pack, focused on age-appropriate Cub Scout activities and conducted at council-approved locations (councils use Pack Overnighter Site Approval Form, No. 13-508). If nonmembers (siblings) participate, the event must be structured accordingly to accommodate them. BSA health and safety and youth protection guidelines apply. In most cases, each youth member will be under the supervision of a parent or guardian. In all cases, each youth participant is responsible to a specific adult.
 
At least one adult on a pack overnighter must have completed Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO, No. 34162) to properly understand the importance of program intent, youth protection guidelines, health and safety, site selection, age-appropriate activities, and sufficient adult participation. Permits for campouts shall be issued locally. If camping outside of the Council boundaries a Tour & Activity Plan must be filed with the Council two weeks prior to the campout.
 
If you have found a public campground facility that meets the BSA Mandatory Standards as listed on the Pack Overnighter Site Approval Form that is NOT listed below you may complete and submit the form to the Council and once approved the facility will be added to this page so others may visit and enjoy its amenities.
