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 the 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.
When is the Winter Wood Badge Course?
The Winter Wood Badge course is scheduled over the following two weekends at Camp Kiwanis.
Weekend #1 - January 27-29, 2017
Weekend #2 - February 24-26, 2017
Each weekend starts at 7:30 am Friday with check in at camp and runs until 5:00 PM Sunday.
