Why Should I Attend Wood Badge?
Wood Badge is the premier
adult leader training
program for the Boy Scouts of America. It teaches
contemporary leadership and team development
skills in a hands on, outdoor setting. Its purpose is
to aid adult Scouters in providing a quality Scouting
program, which will help the Scouts you serve grow
to their greatest potential.
Wood Badge is not a “Scout Skills” course. It
focuses on skills such as communication, team
development, conflict resolution, servant
leadership, and self‐assessment. Wood Badge
combines the most current leadership skills used by
corporate America, with the best elements of the
outdoor leadership training programs of the BSA.
While the skills you take away from Wood Badge
will be useful in your role as a Scouter, they will be
equally helpful in making you a more effective
communicator and leader at work, at home, or in
other volunteer or professional roles.
Our promise to you is a course that provides
knowledge, leadership skills, friendship, and
camaraderie, presented by an enthusiastic t
eam of some of the Council’s best trainers.
Our goal is that you will take away new skills
that you can certainly use in Scouting, but also
in your daily life.
Our guarantee is that you’ll do all this in a fun,
exciting, hands on atmosphere that will provide
you with memories that will last you a lifetime!
Wood Badge is an experience like no other, and I
encourage you to consider joining us in 2016!
