WHO - Wood Badge is designed for Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, Venturing, Sea Scout, and Varsity Leaders at the unit level, as well as district and council leaders. The course content and leadership principles introduced apply to Scouters in all leadership positions. These skills provide common a leadership foundation that is beneficial for all program areas. To attend a Wood Badge course, you must:

  • Be a registered adult member of the Boy Scouts of America. (There is no minimum tenure requirement.)
  • All adult leaders must complete This Is Scouting and Leader Specific Training for their primary registered position. Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills is required for Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters.
  • Successful completion of the BSA Annual Health and Medical Record is required for all participants (parts A, B and C only). No exceptions. 

WHAT - Wood Badge is Scouting’s premier training course. While it is based on learning by doing, Wood Badge is more than mechanical course work. It is the embodiment of Scouting spirit. Taught by enthusiastic and dedicated Scouters, Wood Badge provides Scouters with a “toolbox” of leadership in an interactive and fun environment.

Wood Badge is presented in two phases, over two weekends. The first part of the program (first weekend) is the practical phase. This consists of five days over two weekends at camp plus two patrol meetings between the weekends. The second part of the program, the application phase, occurs after the weekends and consists of applying the skills you learn at Wood Badge to your position in Scouting. This phase is also referred to as “working your ticket.”

WHERE - Yawgoog Scout Reservation - 61 Camp Yawgoog Road Rockville, RI 02873

WHY - Above and beyond the Scouting Training you learn, there are presentations that teach you how to communicate through listening and speaking, create a vision of success, leveraging diversity in your organization, solve problems through decision making and many more valuable trainings. You truly can’t experience this program anywhere like you do with the BSA.

Wood Badge teaches many of the same corporate retreat lessons CEO’s and high level management are required to attend. The only difference with Wood Badge, is you’ll learn through first-hand experience as you participate in leadership activities and methods with your patrol.
