About the Course


Welcome to the Wood Badge 2017 web page. Here you can find all the information you need about the upcoming 2017 course.

Wood Badge is the premier training program for all Scout Leaders in the Boy Scouts of America. This includes all Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity and Venturing Leaders, District and Council Committee members as well as Professional Scouters. Wood Badge is designed to train adult volunteers using the latest leadership skills and techniques. It is a once in a life time training experience.

There are two parts to Wood Badge: The first part consists of two 3 day weekends of practical experience where you have the opportunity to learn skills and concepts (your Keys to Success) that underlie the five themes of Wood Badge.

The second part applies what you learned in a practical course. You will create and carry out a plan of action (your Ticket). When that action is completed, you earn the recognition, beads, neckerchief, and woggle that are the Wood Badge.
