What exactly is taught in Wood Badge?
Wood Badge has always taught leadership skills. Wood Badge focuses on contemporary leadership skills and issues, integrated with Scouting’s value-based philosophy. A variety of learning opportunities including lecture, demonstration, group discussion and hands-on exercise offer participants insight into contemporary leadership theory, while providing them with specific skills that they can put to use immediately in their units. Many participants have found that they can apply what they have learned in their personal and business lives as well. While learning is the primary goal of Wood Badge, fun is also an important component.
The course fee for the 2022 Wood Badge course is $250.00, which covers all instructional materials and all food for the two weekends (except two meals during the second weekend that are furnished by the patrols). In addition, each participant will receive 3 course shirts, cap and training neckerchief. The fee also includes the Wood Badge training award that is presented following completion of the Wood Badge ticket. A fee deposit of $125.00 is due with the course online application, and the balance of the course fee is due by July 16, 2022.
Trained for position, currently registered as member of BSA at Council, District, or Unit level.
