Leader Laurels is the Greater Los Angeles Area Council's premiere outdoor skills training. It encorporates all the elements of the Cub Scout Leader Outdoor Training (BALOO) and the Scouts BSA Leader Outdoor Training (IOLS).

Over the course of 2 days (Saturday to Sunday) your instructors will cover all the subjects required for you to the outdoors with your Scouts -- we'll even all enjoy a campfire together. All your meals are included for this experience; however, if you have particular dietary requirements please bring your own food.
