Oh I forgot, Baloo stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation.
Tour Permits. Off Council property the site of Camping will have to be
approved by a Council Representative, before you can camp there. Even say a
State Park. There is a new Tour Permit with questions that must be answered
about facilities and safety before a Tour Permit will be issued.
Tenure for Tiger Cub Coach, Den Leader and Webelos Den Leader is now One year.
Youth Protection training has been added as a requirement for Training awards.
Tiger cub Coach will cease to exist 6-1-2001. There will be a new Tiger Den
Leader. To have Tigers there must be a Tiger Den Leader, even if only one
TigerScout. Reasoning: Those Tiger with Tiger Coachs have a 90% retention.
Those without a Tiger Coach lose 85%.
New Pack Trainer will replace Den Leader Coach. The Pack Trainer will be
chosen in consultation with District Training Chairman.
Had a couple of meals with the Woodbadge staff at Philmont. The Denver area
is doing that regions prototype Woodbadge. The Woodbadge at Seabase required
living facilities and meals that are not availble at most Scout Camps, so
they are rewriting the syllabus so it can be done by any council without all
the requirements of lodging and meals. Also, the Woodbadge in Seabase was
presented in Powerpoint which is not available to be used by all Councils.
Ethics in action will be removed from Cub Scout How to Book, which is also
being rewritten without any derogatory skits and stuff removed. The Ethics
in Action will be incorporated into every rank advancement.
Lots of changes coming.
