 Wood Badge Objectives

  • To develop better understanding of the purpose and goals of the Scouting program and how they are attained
  • To learn the techniques of Leadership Training and Unit Operations
  • To share in the fun and fellowship of an exciting regional-level training course.

What is it all about?

The Wood Badge experience is training for adult leaders from all scouting programs. It provides participants with firsthand knowledge regarding how teams develop and achieve excellence. Participants take part in an active learning process through involvement in planning, development, presentation and assessment. Participants will enjoy a world-class learning experience that will strengthen their long-term commitment to Scouting and provide them with valuable leadership skills.

Wood Badge is a series of fun and educational weekend training activities that develop you into a better Scout leader. There is some physical challenge involved, but nothing that should keep anyone from attending this great opportunity. The time constraints are tight, but only because we jam so many great training activities into the weekends. Some of the activities covered are:

  • Camping as a patrol.
  • Putting the patrol method into practice by camping, cooking and working as a group.
  • Leadership skills development.
  • Learning games and activities that will work well in your unit.
  • Developing friendships that will last a lifetime.
  • Conduct patrol meetings (not at camp) between your first and second weekends at camp.
