Reserve Your Spot for Fall Wood Badge Today

​Wood Badge is the ultimate Scouting Leadership training for adults and can pay huge dividends for leaders in the operation of their Scouting unit, as well as in their professional and personal lives. 

By taking Wood Badge, Scouters will acquire valuable tools such as listening, communicating, conflict management, project planning, and leading change. Participants will better learn to understand and appreciate diversity and differences in our society. They will learn skills that will make them a better Scout leader. Units with trained leaders are able to deliver an improved program and a more meaningful experience for the youth that Scouting serves.

Wood Badge is designed to meet the advanced leadership needs of all Scouters, particularly unit-level Scouters, such as Cub leaders, Scoutmasters, and assistants, Venturing Crew Advisors, Committee Chairs, and members. Additionally, Scouters serving at the district and council levels can achieve greater effectiveness through what is learned at Wood Badge.

To attend a Wood Badge course, individuals must:

  • Be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America
  • Complete the basic training courses for their Scouting position
  • Be capable of functioning safely in an outdoor environment
  • Complete the Annual Health and Medical Record form

Northern Star Council's next Wood Badge course will take place September 9-11 and October 1-2, 2022 at Stearns Scout Camp. Cost for the course is $250, but you can reserve your spot now with a $100 deposit. Registration fees cover all meals, course materials and recognition items.

We are excited to provide this great opportunity to our leaders this fall and are hopeful that you can join us!
