Leave No Trace Trainer Course

What is a Trainer Course?

Leave No Trace trainer courses are designed to instill the values of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics into environmentally aware participants. At the end of the course, trainers will have gained knowledge of the seven Leave No Trace principles, along with the values of outdoor ethics, and will have the ability to hold awareness workshops for their pack, troop, or crew.

Who Can Attend a Trainer Course?

Anyone 14 or older may attend this Leave No Trace Course. This gives youth in troops and crews the ability to hold the “Outdoor Ethics Guide" position, and adults the ability to bring the knowledge back to their pack, troop, or crew and enforce it during Scouting events, making NEPA council’s camps cleaner and less impacted. All packs, troops, and crews should have a Leave No Trace trainer in order to make this possible!
