Leave No Trace Trainers Course

Camp Long Lake

Saturday, November 11 - Sunday, November 12, 2023

Cost - $65.00


This 16-hour, overnight training course is designed for adult and youth members of Scouting 14 years of age and older who value the land and want to teach others how to protect and preserve it. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a Leave No Trace Trainer certificate, a trainer pin and will be qualified to teach Leave No Trace skills and ethics to all levels of Scouting. This course will meet the requirements for Summer Camp Staff to be trained as a Leave No Trace Trainer and Scouts working for Star, Life or Eagle rank who have been assigned the Troop Outdoor Ethics Guide duities for their position of responsibility and would like more information on Leave No Trace.

There are many ways to teach Leave No Trace. Different training methods will be utilized throughout the course so you can see different styles and build confidence in planning your own workshops. As a participant in this training, you will be required to teach an assigned Leave No Trace principle to the group in a 10-to-12-minute lesson. This is a Train-the Trainer course. Upon successful completion you will be registered with Leave No Trace in Boulder, CO as a Leave No Trace Trainer. There is a need for qualified Scouters to teach awareness workshops at the Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, Sea Scouts, Exploring and Venturing levels. Leave No Trace workshops can be added to Council and District events and trainers will be needed to present them. The BSA Outdoor Ethics structure including Tread Lightly! principles and “The Land Ethic” will also be briefly covered. Please join us at this training. Whatever level you wish to work at, you will be welcome.
