Outdoor Ethics Orientation Course - Virtual
The course is suitable for scouters and mature scouts. We hope as many units as possible are able to send at least 2 scouts and 1 scouter; this will allow your unit to have youth & adult members qualified to lead Outdoor Ethics at all outdoor events and help your scouts & scouters complete some of the requirements to earn the Outdoor Ethics Award for Scouts or NCAC Outdoor Ethics Award for Cub Scouts.
The course is perfect for your unit's Outdoor Ethics Guide (formerly Leave No Trace Trainer) or scouts who plan to take that leadership role.
By the end of the class, the participants should have:
Knowledge of Outdoor Ethics
Knowledge of the Outdoor Code
Knowledge of how Leave No Trace, Tread Lightly! and The Land Ethic / Stewardship support the Outdoor Code
Knowledge of Outdoor Ethics Awareness and Action Awards Program
Knowledge to locate additional Leave No Trace, Tread Lightly! and BSA Outdoor Ethics resources and opportunities for further training
After this course and completion of the on-line Leave No Trace On-Line Awareness course and Tread Lightly! on-line Awareness course, participants should have enough knowledge to
- earn the Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award
- conduct Outdoor Ethics workshops & activities within their respective units
- help scouts & scouters earn their Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award
