"As the Cubmaster of a new Cub Scout Pack, it is important to me to teach kids to respect and appreciate nature. David from Valley to Summit did an awesome Leave No Trace workshop for our kids."

Valley to Summit (“VTS”) is a proud partner with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics (the “Center”), a member-driven organization that is dedicated to the responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors by all people. The Center’s program is grounded in science-based research and is the most widely accepted outdoor ethics program used on public lands. VTS embraces the Center’s seven principles of Leave No Trace (“LNT”) and shares in, practices, supports and offers courses focused on LNT skills, techniques and ethics.
VTS is committed to approaching outdoor recreation and the outdoor industry using low-impact practices by integrating LNT skills, ethics and concepts when operating in the field on every wilderness trip and in its business model. By integrating LNTconcepts and techniques, VTS assists individuals in developing minimum-impact decision-making skills and thereby helps nurture a culture of awareness and sensitivity that is critical to responsible outdoor recreation. VTS looks forward to forming a robust Leave No Trace Pennsylvania wide community.
