Wood Badge is an advanced adult leadership training program for all leaders in Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs. Over six days, Scouters participate in intensive training and use the patrol model. Once this portion is complete, the practical portion begins: completing the Wood Badge ticket. Over a period up to eighteen months, participants complete various projects in service to others, service to the troop, and personal growth. Leaders desiring a deeper dedicated involvement in the Scouting program will find this advanced training highly rewarding.

You will learn skills and concepts that underscore the five Themes of  Wood Badge:

  • Bringing the Vision to Life
  • Models for Success
  • Tools of the Trade
  • Leading to Make a Difference
  • Living the Values

Reflecting on the best of nearly a century of Scouting experience,  Wood Badge also draws upon the most current leadership models being used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor leadership organizations throughout the country.

A listing of all courses offered can be found at www.woodbadge.org.
