What Is Wood Badge?
Wood Badge is the most advanced leadership training available for Scout leaders.
The course is inspired by Baden-Powell, the founder of the world scout movement, who conducted the first Wood Badge course in 1919. It takes the most current leadership and team development skills that are used in American business and combines them with over 100 years of Scouting experience.
Its purpose is to aid you in providing a quality program that enables Scouts to grow to their greatest potential.
Who Can Attend?
Wood Badge is designed for leaders in any Scouting program (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing and Varsity, as well as District and Council Volunteers). It’s for leaders of all experience levels—there are no tenure requirements. If you’re a registered leader and have completed the basic leader training courses for your Scouting position, you can attend Wood Badge.
