Outdoor Ethics

Outdoor Ethics Orientation Course

Scouting is designed to take place outdoors. It is in the outdoor setting that Scouts share responsibilities and learn to live with one another. It is here that the skills and activities practiced at troop meetings come alive with purpose. Being close to nature helps Boy Scouts gain an appreciation for God’s handiwork and humankind’s place in it. The outdoors is the laboratory for Boy Scouts to learn ecology and practice conservation of nature’s resources.

BSA is committed to offering various levels of Outdoor Ethics training to help ensure we conserve our outdoor resources while still enjoying the Scouting program.


The 2-hour BSA Outdoor Ethics Orientation Course introduces the concept of Outdoor Ethics (Leave No Trace, Tread Lightly!, and the Land Ethic) to a group with little experience in outdoor ethics in a fun and engaging way. It should help youth and adults at all program levels understand the general principles behind Scouting’s outdoor ethics program.
