Wood Badge is a leadership training course which delivers high quality skills and techniques for leaders in all areas of Scouting. It draws from a wide range of sources within and beyond the bounds of Scouting to model the best techniques for developing leadership and teamwork among both young people and adults.
Because it was begun by Baden-Powell in England in 1919, it is clearly backed by the finest thought and tradition of the founder. Wood Badge is a great force for world brotherhood and provides leadership for Scouting and leadership for America.
To attend a Wood Badge course, individuals must:
- Be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America. (Youth older than 18 may attend as long as the 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 & Medical form parts A, B and C.
Wood Badge is for Scouting leaders from all areas of scouting…Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity, Venturing, and leaders with ecclesiastical leadership positions. Wood Badge benefits anyone in a leadership position.
