Wood Badge is the Ultimate BSA Leadership Training. It is designed to help Scout leaders in all programs.

Originated by Lord Baden-Powell, Scouters learn leadership skills in a unique way. Through living the scouting program and applying the leadership skills taught at Wood Badge, one will develop a knowledge and understanding of new skills one can use in one's home unit, district, and council.

This course is held at the Leonard & Marjorie Williams Family Scout Reservation, “Camp La-No-Che,” in Paisley, FL.

It is a two-weekend course that begins each Friday morning, at 7:00 AM, and concludes on Sunday afternoon, at approximately 6:00 PM. Attendance  is  required  for both weekends for practical-phase course completion and accreditation.
