Outdoor Ethics Committee

The Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Sea Scout programs all include outdoor stewardship, care for the environment, and Leave No Trace as part of their programs. The NCAC Outdoor Ethics Committee provides outdoor ethics training, advocates adherence to the Outdoor Code, and serves as a resource for outdoor ethics knowledge and questions.


This year (2020) we are offering two TREAD Trainer Courses!  See the flyer for more information.
