Wood Badge

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.

If you or anyone is interested in attending wood badge then be sure to check back soon for the 2017 dates and forms.  If you have any questions feel free to contact Donnie Helstern,, for more info!


Brace yourselves! Winter and the REcharter deadline is coming! Thank you to those units that have submitted their paperwork and to those wrapping it up, if you have any questions, feel free to contact David Todd or Donnie Helstern (see above) for assistance. The Seneca District will be hosting a recharter workshop on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016 at St. Albert the Great Catholic Church (rountable location). We will have food, fellowship, and plenty of people to help close out recharter for 2016 and kick 2017 off on the right foot! This includes any advancements earned, trainings completed, service hours, or camping hours that your Scouts have earned. If you need any assistance in logging this information, just let us know! We are here to help!
