For Additional Information Contact Course Director:

Wood Badge is a leadership course that completes Scouting’s Basic Leadership Training pro-gram for all levels of Scouting leaders (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturing). Wood Badge consists of two parts:

Part 1

The first part is six days of learning experience taught over two weekends. During this time partici­pants are trained in and practice leadership skills to better serve the Scouting units in which they are involved. Through this experience, team development, and the practice of leadership models, each participant will come away with knowledge and understanding of how to apply leadership in all as­pects of Scouting, as well as in business and their personal lives.

Part 2

The second part occurs after the six days of training are over. Participants will put into practice the skills they have learned by completing a set of 5 commitments made during the course. Through this phase, participants will be guided by a counselor who will serve as a mentor and Scouting friend. This phase will take between 6 and 18 months, depending on each individual’s personal goals. Upon successful completion, participants will have earned their Wood Badge Certification.


Wood Badge is for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout and Venturing leaders as well as District and Council Scouting leaders. The course content and leadership principles intro­duced apply to Scouters in all leadership positions. These skills provide a common leadership foundation that is beneficial for all program areas.
