Wood Badge Course Overview
The Wood Badge training course is open to EVERY registered adult volunteer in Scouting. Wood Badge is a course that all Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Venturing, District and Council level leaders and volunteers should take! Wood Badge focuses on team building and developing your leadership skills. The skills you learn at Wood Badge not only help you be a more effective volunteer and leader within your home unit, or Scouting position, but you can take the skills you learn into your job, family life or other organizations you work with and improve there as well!
