The scouts follow the principal of “leave no trace” when camping and during outdoor activities. No reason that we all shouldn’t. It simply means leaving your campsite better than you found it. That way everyone can enjoy it as much as you did. Nothing is more disheartening than finding a campsite or trail with trash left behind. However, leaving no trace is much more than just picking up your trash. Here is a checklist to keep in mind to go over. If you can think of something I didn’t mention, please leave a comment! Always looking for new ideas!
