THIS COURSE IS OPEN TO BOTH YOUTH AND ADULTS!!

Bring your units youth leaders to establish a youth led LNT program in your unit (Minimum age is 14 Class size is limited to 12).

This course will be held at Chesebrough Scout Reservation.

Learn the proper Leave No Trace methods for taking Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing units camping. As more people use parks and recreation facilities, LEAVE NO TRACE guidelines become even more important for outdoor visitors. Leave No Trace is a plan that helps people to be more concerned about their environment and to help them protect it for future generations. Leave No Trace applies in a backyard or local park (frontcountry) as much as it does in the wilderness (backcountry).

This course will be a fun and engaging way to learn the 7 LNT principles and offer opportunities for you to take these exciting methods back to your unit and start teaching LNT right away.
