This course is designed to train boy scouts (age 14 and older), ventures, and adults to serve as LNT Trainers for Scouting and the wider public.
The youth leaders of a busy outdoor adventure program must be able to apply LNT to a variety of activities in different environments during all seasons of the year, all done in the company of Scouting youth and adults with varying levels of outdoor skills, self discipline, and commitment to an outdoor ethic.
Additionally, the course will provide participants with a deeper understanding of LNT 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.
Individuals planning trips to National High Adventure Bases, camp staff members, unit leaders and those in District or Council training positions are urged to attend. The fee includes camping fees, food, and instructional resources.
Each participant will be expected to prepare a 10-15 minute presentation on his or her assigned LNT topic.
