The Best Adult Leadership Training Available
Who is Wood Badge For?
Wood Badge is for all Scouters 21 and older who are interested in
strengthening their own leadership skills and are committed to
strengthening the Scouting program.
What is Wood Badge?
The primary purpose of the Wood Badge experience is to strengthen
Scouting in our units, districts, and councils. In order to graduate, you must attend
and participate in all sessions of your course, including both weekends
and pre-course meetings.
The Wood Badge "ticket"
represents your commitment to complete a set of personal goals relating
to your Scouting position. You will have up to 18
months to complete your "ticket", with the guidance and
encouragement of your counselor. Upon completion of your Wood Badge
ticket, you will be presented with your Wood Badge certificate, neckerchief, woggle, and
beads at an appropriate public ceremony.
