Bismarck, ND. This week, we spent two full days educating local boy and girl scouts and leaders on the importance practicing leave no trace on their outings. Along with leave no trace, the brownies, juniors, and cadets of Camp Okancusa are learning many other skills including campfire building, meal planning and preparation, and first aid. There was a great energy at camp despite having to move indoors because of the relentless rains. Luckily, by the end of this week, the storm will pass and the sun will be shining as the culminating campout approaches.
During two evening presentations with other local scouts and leaders, we played “What Principle Am I?”, “How Long Does It Last”, and “Minimum Impact Match” to reinforce the strong leave no trace foundation that already existed within the group.
Our time in Bismarck was made extremely comfortable due to the hospitality of Mary Kay and her husband Dave. Also, a special thank-you to Kathy, Doreen, Janelle, and Patty for making our events well attended and successful!
We are now en route to Boise Idaho for the Boise Rec Fest happening this weekend. Come check it out!
