PEAK Program is back

Posted on May 5, 2010 by Camp Nashoba

Camp Nashoba North is proud to once again participate in the PEAK (Promoting Environmental Awareness in Kids) program and to bring it’s important message to our campers and staff.    Last summer Nashoba North campers were introduced to the PEAK program through a variety of games, skits in Plummer Hall, and discussions on trips.  After a great start last year we plan on doing even more with the program this summer.

The PEAK  program is the result of a unique partnership between REI and the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.  PEAK is based on the seven principles of Leave No Trace and is designed to educate children about the outdoors and responsible use of our shared public lands.

The seven Leave No Trace principles are:

  1. Know before you go
  2. Choose the right path
  3. Pack your trash
  4. Leave what you find
  5. Be careful with fire
  6. Respect wildlife
  7. Be kind to other visitors

The goal of the program is to increase awareness of Leave No Trace principles and to promote the stewardship of outdoor recreational resources in today’s youth.  Speak Spanish?  No problem, the program is also available in Spanish.  You can learn more about the PEAK program here.
