Wood Badge S3-576-21-1A

Wood Badge is BSA's ultimate leadership training for adults.  Designed for leaders of all BSA programs. Wood Badge is a fun, challenging and inspirational Scouting experience. It offers a five-day immersion in the theory, practice and experience of appropriate skills for leading others within Scouting and in many environments beyond the BSA.

Participants can expect to develop skills in many areas, including leadership theory, team building, problem-solving, communication, conflict resolution, project planning and more that can be taken directly back to packs, troops, ships and crews to help leaders guide youth in dynamic Scouting programs.

Wood Badge consists of two parts. The first is an overnight five-day practical program over two separate weekends. The second part, completed over the following 18 months, requires participants to apply the skills they have learned by completing five goals (called your "ticket") leading towards the participant's vision of a better Scouting future.

The format for the practical part of the Wood Badge Course is two weekends: The first is a 3-day weekend (Friday at 7:30AM until Sunday at 5PM).  The accommodations for this first weekend will depend upon CDC, state and local gathering limitations and distancing recommendations, and will either be in cabins or personal tents.  The second, a 2-day weekend, (Saturday at 7:30AM until Sunday at 5PM) will be camping in personal tents.  Both weekends are held at Camp Strake.

Week 1: October 15-17, 2021
Week 2: October 30-31, 2021

The course fee is $275.
