Upcoming Wood Badge Courses Filling Very Fast!

What It Is and Why You Should Take It

Wood Badge is a six-day training that gives leaders opportunities to learn about Scouting, use the patrol method, develop an individual vision and gain tools that apply to all areas of life.

When asked about Wood Badge after the Winter 2019 course, Scouters say:

  • “I’ve learned so much that will help me to be better not only for my Cub Scouts, but in my personal and professional life.”
  • “It will refine the way I approach all tasks and program delivery to Scouts and Scouters.”
  • “As a 2nd year Scouter, and never having been a Scout in my youth, this was incredible.The content was unbelievable, but the most valuable take away for me was the honest enthusiasm and excitement for the program—excitement that we leaders need to share with our youth.”
  • “It has given me a cohesive and realistic set of leadership tools which I can apply to every meeting and contact.”
  • “Amazing.”
  • “Essential for Pack/Troop/Crew leaders.I wish I had done it a long time ago.”
  • “It renewed my fire in Scouting.The info presented will help with all of the relationships in my life, not just in Scouting.”
  • “I've been in the program almost 20 years and am always looking for new (or better) ways of doing things.I learned quite a bit about both myself and how to better handle situations.”
  • “Great information and connections with knowledgeable Scouters.Acorns have been planted.”
