Wood Badge


What is it? Scouting's Advanced adult training course.

Begun in 1919 by Robert Baden-Powell, founder of Scouting, Wood Badge has evolved to give leaders the skills they need to strengthen Scouting in meaningful ways. 21st Century Wood Badge places special emphasis on team development and how to tailor your leadership skills to meet the needs of the group whether youth or adults. 

Five days in length, the course covers leadership skills, organizational tools, and participatory activities based on the best of Scouting traditions and the best of team development approaches. In addition, participants will enjoy the fellowship of learning alongside many other volunteers and professional Scouters and will have a great deal of FUN! 

Specifically, this course will help you:
Apply contemporary leadership concepts to our values-based movement.
Understand Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, and Venturing as a family of values-based programs providing age-appropriate activities for youth.
Revitalize your commitment to Scouting through fun and fellowship in a learning environment. 

Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be one of the peak experiences of their Scouting careers. In the United States, it has served as a source of training and inspiration to many thousands. In return, Wood Badge participants have affected the lives of millions of America's youth.
