Wood Badge 2015

The time has come for ALL adult leaders of Troops, Crews, Teams, and Packs as well as all council and district leaders to consider registering for the 2015 Hoosier Trails Wood Badge course. 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. The focus of Wood Badge is on leadership, not outdoor skills, and the objective is to demonstrate the aims and methods of Scouting through the presentation of leadership skills, organizational tools, and a variety of activities based on the best of Scouting traditions. 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. Participants must attend both weekends and complete their Wood Badge Ticket after the weekend trainings. The fee for the course is $220.00, which covers all meals and supplies for the 2 weekends. Registration is open here but enrollment is limited so I urge you to register early. Should you need more information please feel free to contact Jon Ocheltree @ 812.336.6809.
