What is Wood Badge?

Wood Badge is an exciting, action-packed program over the course of two weekends (7:00 am Friday morning-5:00 pm Sunday evening) designed for councils to provide adult members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their Scouting positions and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The Wood Badge course centers upon the concepts of servant leadership and leaving a legacy. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on “how to.” The skills come alive during the week as the patrol completes a patrol project based upon what they have learned.
