What is Wood Badge?
Wood Badge is the most advanced adult leader training available. A Scouter participating in Wood Badge has the opportunity to understand Scouting as a family of interrelated, values-based programs providing age-appropriate activities for youth. It recognizes contemporary leadership concepts and will help the participant discover how they are relevant to the Scouting movement and apply the skills learned as a member of a successful working team. The course will revitalize their committment to Scouting by sharing in an inspirational experience that provides Scouting with renewed leadership, resulting in a greater youth retention. Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be a peak experience in their Scouting career.
