Wood Badge is the most advanced adult leader training available. A Scouter participating in Wood Badge has the opportunity to understand Scouting as a family of interrelated, values-based programs providing age-appropriate activities for youth. It recognizes contemporary leadership concepts and will help the participant discover how they are relevant to the Scouting movement and apply skills learned as a member of a successful working team. The course will revitalize the participants’ commitment to Scouting by sharing in an inspirational experience that provides Scouting with renewed leadership, resulting in greater youth retention. Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be a peak experience of their Scouting careers. Sir Robert S.S. Baden-Powell began Wood Badge in 1919. This course celebrates what has grown to be the premier adult leader training experience envisioned by Scouting’s founder all those years ago.
Wood Badge is for all leaders over the age of 18. It has been developed for unit committee, Cub Scout, Scout BSA, and Venturing leaders, and council and district leaders. The course content and leadership principles apply to Scouters of all leadership positions and provide a common foundation of leadership skills throughout all program areas.
Each Scouter invited to participate in Wood Badge must be a paid and registered member of the Boy Scouts of America and have completed all leader position training. They must complete an annual BSA Health and Medical Forms Parts A, B, and C and COVID 19 Participant Waiver.
