What is Wood Badge?
You are invited to experience the ultimate in Scout Leadership Training. Organized by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, Wood Badge is training in group leadership skills and unit operations.
There are two parts to Wood Badge. The practical five-day experience consists of living the patrol method with a group of Scouters in a Scouting environment while being taught leadership and life skills applicable to Scouting, business, and family.
After the practical experience, you follow through on the commitment you made during the instructional phase of the course to apply the principles you learned through practical experience. This takes a minimum of six months. During this period you will develop a knowledge and understanding of leadership skills; what they are, how to use them, when each is appropriate, plus an intense personal motivation to apply these skills in the best way in your Scouting job.
