Leave No Trace Awareness Courses
Lupine can now offer Leave No Trace Awareness Courses for those wishing to undertake ethical journeys in sensitive and remote areas. Leave No Trace extends the concepts of the Countryside Code more applicably to wild-country journeying, worldwide.
The course is suitable for everyone – children, young people and adults – and can be tailored to your specific needs.
The course covers –
- The background of the LNT movement
- The Seven LNT Principles
- Travelling and camping
- Waste disposal
- Heritage and culture
- Other users
- Applying the LNT Principles to your journeys
The course is delivered practically, outdoors as far as possible, involving fun and thoughtful activities.
By the end of the course participants will have a solid foundation for carrying out ethical journeys in sensitive and remote areas. They’ll also receive a certificate.
The content can be delivered flexibly, for example:
- As an addition to Duke of Edinburgh’s Award training, delivered by Lupine. LNT is especially applicable to Gold participants who plan to wild camp but also for Bronze and Silver to introduce foundations for the whole award.
- As a standalone, one day event, delivered close to your base or our own location, in the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District or Peak District. This could be run in conjunction with a one day navigation course or other event to “make a weekend of it”.
- As a half day, after-school or evening activity for school, scout, youth or other groups keen to learn more about sustainable wild-country travel as part of an outdoor education programme
- As an addition to a DofE training or practice activities. Perhaps a small charge of a few pounds per person to cover additional resources. Please contact us to find out if LNT can be incorporated into your programme.
- As a one day event, in the region of £200 (depending on preferred venue) for a group of up to 11 participants. Please contact us to discuss your plans.
- As a half day, or shorter, activity for a “class-sized” group. Please contact us for a quote.
For standalone, one day events - please come equipped for hill walking: comfortable walking boots, a full set of waterproofs, warm clothes, hat, gloves, day pack, lunch, flask or water bottle. Your instructor will be carrying a comprehensive first aid kit and all other essential safety equipment.
If you would like to borrow any equipment then let us know in advance and we will bring it from our stores.
