What is "Wood Badge"? Leadership skills training for adult Scouters in all programs, from Cubs through Venturing
Who is it for? You! If you have completed basic training for your Scouting position, then Wood Badge is for you. Everyone should attend Wood Badge within 2 years of completing their basic position training. This includes Cub, Boy Scout, Venturing, and Sea Scout leaders; committee members at the unit, district, and council level; and even Scouting professionals.
Why should I attend? Wood Badge teaches practical leadership skills including better communications, conflict management, team development, project planning, and more. It does so while demonstrating how Scouts and Scouters work together in a fun camp setting. The skills you gain from Wood Badge give you a common leadership framework to use through all Scouting programs, as well as in your job, church, community, and family. Wood Badge is useful, fun, and inspiring. People who have been trained professionally, such as in the military or business, as well as professional trainers, frequently remark that Wood Badge delivers first class leadership training more effectively than other training they have had. In addition, you will meet and work with Scouters from all over our council who can answer questions, discuss problems, share experiences, and become contacts you can call on for years.
