Wood Badge


Trained volunteer leadership is one of the keys to a successful Scouting experience. As the core leadership skills training course for the Boy Scouts of America, Wood Badge focuses on strengthening each volunteer’s ability to work with and lead groups of youth and adults.

Since its introduction in 1919, Wood Badge has been an essential component in the success of the Scouts. Volunteers who complete Wood Badge training receive a certificate, neckerchief, a leather slide, and two small wooden beads on a leather thong.

Participants must attend both sessions and have the option to choose which location is most convenient for them.
