October 5 -6 2019
COURSE STARTS AT 7:30 AM SHARP!

TORO PARK, SALINAS
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 20)

Learn the proper Leave No Trace methods for taking Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, 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 (front country) as much as it does in the wilderness (back country).

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.

 

You will learn more about:

-How to implement Leave No Trace in your units outdoor program

-How to properly present the Leave No Trace skills to your unit and others

-What’s new in Leave No Trace techniques and how they apply to the BSA program

-The BSA’s Leave No Trace awards and how members of your unit can earn them

 

There will be a fee of $55.00 which will cover food and your materials.  The course is open to any Scout (14 yrs or older), Venturer, or adult Scouter.  You will learn the proper techniques for Leave No Trace camping and other activities and have a great time as well!  All participants will need to supply their own camping equipment.  You should bring a folding camp chair for the course as well.  We will be in an outside environment, so dress accordingly.  The course will be held rain or shine!  Every person attending will receive a LNT Trainers Certificate, patch, written materials.
