We are looking for ambassadors ages 14-16 to participate in two nights of EXPERT-LED CAMPING and a 1-night excursion to the Len Foote Hike Inn - a rustic, backcountry lodge accessed by a 5-mile guided hike through CHATTAHOOCHEE NATIONAL FOREST in North Georgia.

This April they'll be introduced to OUTDOOR STEWARDSHIP and receive HANDS-ON TRAINING to help them CONNECT AND INSPIRE others.

Camping and hiking FUN round out with a YOUTH SUMMIT where they will lend their POWERFUL VOICES to find ways to connect other young people to the public lands that BELONG TO ALL OF US.

Afterwards we challenge them to go into their communities SHARING their outdoor STEWARDSHIP EXPERIENCES and UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES!

Deadline to apply for 2020 is December 10, 2019
