This course is open to all Scoutmaster, Committee members, Den Leaders, Unit Commissioners and District Scouters. Wood Badge is the premier adult national training course in the Boy Scouts of America.

Participants will enjoy the fellowship of sharing the experience with volunteer and professional Scouters all while having the most fun you can in a Scout uniform. The course will take place this year at Maumee Scout Reservation over 2 weekends: August 28th - 30th and September 18th - 20th.
