    I’m in the process of going through the new requirements and preparing as much as possible so our pack will be able to “hit the trail running” when the new books come out soon. Does anyone know if there’s much difference between teaching the boys about “Leave No Trace” in the old requirements and “Leave No Trace Principles for Kids” in the new requirements??
