Effective September 1, 2023, Cub Scout packs conducting their overnight camping activity may camp for up to two consecutive nights. Cub Scout packs conducting their overnight camping activities must continue to have at least one registered adult leader trained in Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO), oversee the planning, and be in attendance for the pack campout. This updated policy also applies to Webelos and Arrow of Light dens, which may conduct den-coordinated campouts. The policy will be updated in the Guide to Safe Scouting and other resources on September 1. An updated version of the BALOO training will also be released.
Remember, the Council must approve Cub Scout camping sites in advance. Council camps are the only sites appraised and approved for unit Cub Scout camping.
