Course Overview

Wood Badge is designed to be advanced leadership training for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing adult leaders at the unit, district, council, and professional levels, taught in the living experience of a Boy Scout troop employing the patrol method.

Learning Objectives

As a result of attending Wood Badge, participants will be able to:

  • View Scouting globally, as a family of interrelated, values-based programs that provide age appropriate activities for youth.
  • Recognize the contemporary leadership concepts utilized in corporate America and leading government organizations that are relevant to our values-based movement.
  • Apply the skills learned from their participation as a member of a successful working team.
  • Revitalize their commitment by sharing in an overall inspirational experience that helps provide Scouting with the leadership it needs to accomplish its mission on an ongoing basis.

Participant Prerequisites: Be a Registered member of the B.S.A.. All participants must have completed the basic leader training course for their position in Scouting. Outdoor skills training is not required but would be useful and be capable of functioning safely in the outdoors. A full Scout uniform will be the dress for the course.
