Wood Badge is a leadership training course for all Scout Leaders who are involved in any part of the Boys Scouts of America: Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Venturing, Varsity Scouting - as well as members of Council, District Leaders and Scouting Professionals.
This course focuses on leadership and "people" skills - not on Scoutcraft or outdoor skills. Participants will not only learn techniques to make themselves better leaders, but they will also learn how to effectively lead groups towards a specific goal.
The 21st Century Wood Badge program incorporates the best of over a century of Scouting experience in addition to drawing upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful leadership organizations throughout the country. Completion of this program earns the participant Continuing Education Credits - please talk to Marie Snyder, the course Scoutmaster, for more information.
Registered with the Boy Scouts of America
Over 18 years of age
Fully trained for your position in scouting
One of the great traditions of Wood Badge is "the Ticket." Under the guidance of their Troop Guides, participants will develop a contract, or Ticket, consisting of five goals that will allow them to put into action all that they learned over the 6-day course. Participants have up to 18-months to complete their Ticket and earn their Wood Badge credentials.
