2021 Wood Badge
Wood Badge is advanced Scout leader training that began in 1919 by Lord Baden-Powell, founder of Scouting and Wood Badge’s first director. It came to America in 1948 and has developed to become the most advanced leadership training course in Scouting.
The object of a Wood Badge course is to demonstrate as practically as possible the aims and methods of Scouting. Five days in duration and delivered over two weekends, the course is a multifaceted presentation of leadership skills, organizational tools, and participatory activities based on the best of Scouting traditions and the latest in team-development theory. Participants will also enjoy the fellowship of learning alongside many other volunteers and professional Scouters, and along the way have a great deal of fun.
