Wood Badge - Fall Course 2015

What is Wood Badge?

Wood Badge is the most advanced adult leader training available.  A Scouter participating in Wood Badge has the opportunity to understand Scouting as a family of interrelated, values-based programs providing age-appropriate activities for youth.  It recognizes contemporary leadership concepts and will help the participant discover how they are relevant to the Scouting movement and apply the skills learned as a member of a successful working team.  The course will revitalize their commitment to Scouting by sharing in an inspirational experience that provides Scouting with renewed leadership, resulting in a greater youth retention.  Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be a peak experience in their Scouting career.

Who may attend Wood Badge?

Wood Badge is for all Boy Scouts of America volunteers.  It has been developed for unit committee, Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders, as well as council and district leaders.  The course content and leadership principles introduced apply to Scouters of all positions and will provide a common foundation of leadership skills to be used throughout all program areas.


Each Scouter invited to participate in Wood Badge training must be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America and have completed the courses for their Scout position specific "Trained" patch.  They must complete the annual BSA health and medical form.  The course size is limited.  To request an invitation, please submit the form below with a deposit of $75.00.


Deposit of $75.00 will hold a space for you until July 20, 2015. The Early Bird fee is $245 due by July 20, 2015 and includes an Early Bird Patch. After July 20th the course fee is $275.00. Course fees include food, instructional materials, handouts, course t-shirt and patch, and the Wood Badge Award.
