About NCAC Outdoor Ethics

The Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, 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.


NCAC has a new Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award for Cub Scouts and adult Cub Scout Leaders.  It’s the NCAC Cub Scout Outdoor Ethics Awareness Award.  See the flyer for more information:  NCAC Cub Scout Outdoor Ethics Award
