Scout Trainers Are Needed to Conduct the LNT Program

In keeping with the goal of having Scout-led programs within the Boy Scout troops and Venturing crews, the Leave No Trace program at the Colonial District Spring 1999 camporee will rely heavily on mature Scouts who can lead their colleagues in a set of LNT-related activities during the Saturday program.

In order to serve as LNT Trainers at the camporee, 36 Scouts will need to participate in a train-the-trainer session at Prince William Forest Park on Saturday, March 20, and Sunday, March 21, 1999.  Those Scouts who participate in this training and who serve as trainers at the camporee will fulfill most of the requirements of the BSA Leave No Trace Outdoor Awareness Award.  About eight adult Scouters also are needed to participate in this training and to serve as staff advisors to the LNT training teams at the camporee.

Troop and crew leaders are asked to identify mature (not necessarily older, but definitely mature in attitude and action) Scouts who have a well developed, confident presentation style.  Send the names and phone numbers of these Scouts to Dominick Caridi at 703/360-9206 -H; 202/268-6488 W; DSCaridi@aol.com -H; or dcaridi@email.usps.gov -W.

In order to facilitate training for this exciting element of the camporee program (and a wonderful leadership opportunity for the Scouts who participate), please send this information to Dominick as soon as possible.
