  • Wood Badge is the ultimate leadership training for adults in the Boy Scouts of America.

    It offers a six day immersion in the theory, practice and experience of appropriate skills for teaching others within Scouting and other environments beyond the Boy Scouts of America.

    It accomplishes this by building all of the pieces of the course on a foundation of the five central themes:

    •  Living the Values
    •  Bringing the Vision to Life
    •  Models for Success
    •  Tools of the Trade
    •  Leading to Make a Difference

    Wood Badge is designed to be as valuable to leaders involved in Cub Scouting, Varsity Scouting and Venturing as it is to those primarily involved with the Boy Scout Program.
