BSA Leave No Trace Trainer Course 

September 22-24, 2017

BSA Leave No Trace Trainer Course 
This 16-hour, overnight course trains interested individuals ages 14 and older to serve as Leave No Trace Trainers. Trainers are the backbone of Scouting's outdoor ethics program, providing instruction to individuals and units wishing to adopt cutting-edge outdoor ethics into their unit programs. Trainers are specially commissioned to teach the BSA Leave No Trace 101 course and to qualify individuals for the BSA Leave No Trace Awareness card. Completion of this course or another recognized Leave No Trace Trainer course is required for a youth to hold the Boy Scout/Varsity Scout Leave No Trace Trainer position of responsibility in his unit. Each BSA Trainer course is taught by a recognized Leave No Trace Master Educator, so your Trainer standing is recognized nationally by the BSA's partner, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.

  • Instructed by: Leave No Trace Master Educator Wes Stepherson
  • Assisted by: Leave Not Trace Trainer Emily Campbell
  • Participants receive: Leave No Trace Trainer card from the BSA, BSA Leave No Trace 101 Course Guide, and Leave No Trace Trainer certificate from the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics
