Wood Badge 2022
What is Wood Badge?
Wood Badge is advanced leadership training for Cub Scout, Scouts BSA and Venturing adult leaders at the unit, district, council, and professional levels. It is taught by living the experience of a Scouts BSA Troop, utilizing the patrol method, over two weekends.
Wood Badge is about learning and developing Leadership skills, rather than basic Scouting skills - skills that can be used in Scouting and all facets of life.
By using a variety of learning techniques, including lectures, demonstrations, group discussions, and hands on exercises, participants will learn contemporary leadership skills and tools needed to provide the youth members of their units with the highest scouting experience.
A Wood Badge course teaches leadership skills by focusing on five key areas: Living the Values, Growing, Connecting, Guiding and Empowering.
What to Expect:
This new five-day format will be held over two weekends. The first is Friday Sept 23 through Sunday Sept 25, the second is Saturday Oct 22 through Sunday Oct 23. To complete the course participants must attend both weekends.
Participants must be registered members of the BSA, have current Youth Protection Training, provide a current BSA Medical Form Part A, B, C and be "Trained" for their registered position.
During both weekends, participants will tent camp. During the first weekend all meals will be prepared by the staff. During the second weekend, most meals will be prepared using the patrol method, in patrol campsites.
