What is Wood Badge?

Reflecting the best of over a century of Scouting experience, Wood Badge draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful organizations throughout the country.

Baden Powell founded wood Badge training in 1919 as a way to ensure that the leaders of Scout troops were properly trained. Since then, Wood Badge has been held worldwide, providing advanced leadership training to thousands of Scout Leaders.

Wood Badge builds on the best traditions and experiences of the Boy Scouts of America. Also, it draws from a wide range of courses within and beyond the bounds of Scouting to present the latest in leadership theory and team development. 

Who Should Attend?

Wood Badge is designed to meet the advanced leadership needs of all Scouters, particularly unit-level Scouters, such as Cub leaders, Scoutmasters and assistants, Venturing Crew Advisors, Committee Chairs and members. Additionally, Scouters serving at the District and Council levels can achieve greater effectiveness through Wood Badge.

To attend a Wood Badge course, individuals must:

  • Be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America (Youth 18 and older may attend as long as appropriate Youth Protection Guidelines are followed. They do not need to be registered in an adult leadership role.)

  • Have completed the basic training courses for their Scouting position.

  • Be capable of functioning safely in an outdoor environment. All participants are required to complete the Annual Health and Medical form (A, B, & C).

  • Commit to both weekends and developing your tickets and completing them. 

Why Attend?

By taking Wood Badge, Scouters will acquire valuable tools such as connecting, growing, guiding, empowering and living the values.  Participants will better learn to understand and appreciate diversity and differences in our society. You will learn skills that will make you a better Scout leader. Units with trained leaders can deliver an improved program and a more meaningful experience for the youth Scouting serves.  At the end of the two weekend course, you’re guaranteed to be ready to tackle any problem your Scouts throw your way. And, it might just be the most fun you’ll ever have as a Scouter. 

The activities involved in Wood Badge aren’t a BSA creation. If your boss shipped you off to a team-development course in the past several decades, you’ve probably heard of them. In fact, you can find most of the leadership lessons taught at Wood Badge in the self-help section of your local bookstore. But those books lack the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law, and they don’t include Scouting-specific connections that convert abstract leadership lessons into something you can actually use. And unlike your office’s awkward team-building outings, everyone at Wood Badge actually wants to be there. One female Scout leader said, “I’ve worked with great groups and dysfunctional groups. I was never able to understand why some worked and some didn’t. Wood Badge really helps me connect the dots.” This is a course that you can use everywhere else in your life. It makes you a better leader and a better communicator. It’s something you can bring to your family and your workplace. It makes you think about the things you do, how you do them, and why.
