Wood Badge teaches contemporary leadership and team development skills in an outdoor and Scouting setting with the ultimate purpose to aid adults in providing a quality, youth run program that will enable their youth to grow to their greatest potential.
The course covers all aspects of Scouting from Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturing.
Wood Badge combines the most current leadership skills used by corporate America with the best elements of successful leadership programs from over 100 years of Scouting experience.
The course is completed over two weekends (7:30 am Friday, August 21 - 5:00 pm Sunday, August 23; and 7:00am Saturday, September 12 - 5:00pm Sunday, September 13) which encompasses the practical training.
At the conclusion of the practical training each participant has 18 months to complete the application phase (ticket) and meet all goals they personally developed and enhanced from the training experience.
Come be part of a mountain top experience, grow personally and professionally, but most of all gain that diverse knowledge of Scouting and increase your Scouting network.
