Leave No Trace Trainer Program
May 2-4, 2014
Tesomas Scout Camp, Rhinelander Wisconsin
A modern Scouting unit faces countless "Leave No Trace" decisions as part of an active outdoor program. Every new outdoor activity and location adds more interesting challenges as we try to minimize recreational damages while meeting outdoor program goals. Each decision can be as simple as choosing where to pitch a tent or which way to walk across a meadow, but the sheer number of these decisions can be overwhelming to an unprepared unit.
This course is designed to train older youth (14 years of age or older and First Class ) and adults to serve as Leave No Trace Trainers for Scouting. This course provides participants with a deeper understanding of Leave No Trace to help individuals make and guide others in making good choices to minimize recreational impacts to help protect the wonderful outdoor locations they choose to enjoy.
The course is divided into 2 sections: the first, an all day indoor session where the participant will gain an in-depth knowledge of LNT principles and training techniques and the second, an outdoor session where participants can practice their teaching skills and LNT techniques with their fellow participants.
- Cost: $40.00 / Course materials will be provided during the session
