I'm going to serve as my younger son's Webelos Leader starting next summer. I want to take this course, because it is exactly what I need.
OUTDOOR WEBELOS LEADER TRAINING (OWL)
For all Webelos Leaders and soon to be Leaders. OWL is training to help Webelos Leaders learn the skills necessary to successfully implement the Webelos program. The leader will learn such skills as Fire Building, Outdoor Cooking, Knots, etc.
But, a council professional told me OWL was discontinued and suggested I take Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO). I took BALOO last spring and it was nothing like the course described above. What do you suggest? And, does anyone have their old OWL syllabus that I could pay for a copy?
By the way, I though BALOO was a very good course, but it's purpose is to train a pack leader so that a pack may go camping at non-BSA sites, not train how to teach outdoors Webelos skills needed to earn their badges.(This message has been edited by CubsRgr8)
