 2020 Course Details

Wood Badge is premiere leadership training for all Scout Leaders and Scouters who are involved in the programs of the Boy Scouts of America: Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing, as well as council and district leaders, and professionals.

This contemporary training program focuses on leadership and “people” skills, not Scoutcraft or outdoor skills. Participants will learn techniques to make them better leaders, and also how to lead groups to achieve objectives. The Wood Badge course incorporates the best of over a century of Scouting experience in addition to drawing upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor leadership organizations throughout the country. Skills developed from Wood Badge training will help the participant do a better job in any BSA program - at any level of involvement. Skills learned at Wood Badge can be used in other aspects of their life as well.
