What is it?

Wood Badge is the highest leadership training course offered by the BSA.  It is the only course recognized by every country in the world that has Scouting.

Who may attend?

It is open to registered Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting and Venturing leaders.  It focuses not on Scouting skills, but on leadership skills, taught in a Scouting setting, that are transferable to every aspect of your life.

How does it work?

It is taught in two phases: the practical phase, consisting of two 3-day weekends at camp, and the application phase or “ticket.”  The ticket is a contract, with five goals you promise to complete over an 18-month period, using the leadership skills you’ve learned during the two weekends.

You want me to volunteer for more work?

No!  The great thing about your Wood Badge Ticket is that it centers around the Scouting job you’re already doing!  So you’re not committing to doing another job. . . just learning to do your job better!

Where will it be held?

Course N4-527-17 will be held at Camp Twin Echo in New Florence, PA.  Attendance is limited to 56 participants - so register early!  Applications received after the course is full will be put on a waiting list.
