Where do you hold these events?
I believe (and could of course be wrong) that you practice
LNT methods in the backcountry.
Now, I guess it depends on your definition of backcountry
but the typical Council "fixed-site' camp or local field or
recreation area where you might hold a Camporee or Klondike
Derby is probably not "backcountry".
It certainly makes sense to practice an LNT *ethic* all of
the time but unless you're having your Camporee in a
wilderness area :-) the things we used to call "low impact"
camping and "camping etiquette" are what should apply.
