The object of a Wood Badge course is to demonstrate as practically as possible the aims and methods of Scouting. Six days in duration, the course is a multifaceted presentation of leadership skills, organizational tools and participatory activities based on the best of Scouting traditions and the latest in team-development theory. In addition, participants will enjoy the fellowship of learning alongside many other volunteer and professional Scouters, and along the way will have a GREAT DEAL OF FUN!
Upon successful completion of all course requirements, each participant receives a certificate, scarf/woggle, and the Wood Badge - two wooden beads to be worn around the neck on a leather thong. Wood Badge training offers a tremendous opportunity for you to:
¨ Understand Scouting as a family of interrelated, values-based programs providing age-appropriate activities for youth.
¨ Recognize contemporary leadership concepts used in America and discover how those concepts are relevant to our values-based movement.
¨ Apply the skills you learn from your participation as a member of a successful working team.
¨ Revitalize your commitment to Scouting by sharing in an inspirational experience that helps to provide Scouting with renewed leadership to accomplish its mission.
Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be a peak experience of their Scouting careers. It has served as a source of training and inspiration to thousands. In return, Wood Badge participants have positively affected the lives of millions of America's youth.
