Wood Badge

Wood Badge is an advanced adult training opportunity for ALL Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Venturing leaders. As a participant in this course, you will work with others to learn and practice leadership skills as a member of a successful working team and live the values of Scouting.

Wood Badge is the ultimate leadership training experience for adult Scouters. Although the course is conducted in outdoor surroundings, the focus is on the application of LEADERSHIP SKILLS. These skills are reinforced through active learning sessions in an ideal Scouting environment.

One of the unique features of this course is the application of the skills you will learn. You will be able to use the lessons and experiences from Wood Badge outside of Scouting to help make every team successful – at your work or at home.

Inspired in England by Lord Baden Powell at Gilwell Park, Wood Badge is today offered to Scouters just like you all around the world. Upon successful completion of the course and achievement of goals you established during the course, you will receive a completion certificate, your Wood Badge beads, and you will become a permanent member of Troop 1, Gilwell – joining the thousands of other Scouters who have traveled this road before you.
