WHAT Wood Badge is the premier adult leadership training course offered by the Boy Scouts of America. Through the years, the content of Wood Badge has gradually changed and evolved—from the campcraft and Scoutcraft skills of its early years, to more effective communication, relationship, and planning competencies today.

Wood Badge now draws upon the most current leadership models used by businesses, corporate America, university programs, the military, and other leadership entities and organizations to present the latest in leadership theory, competencies, and behaviors.

Through presentations, games, discussions, activities, and other methods you will be exposed to concepts of listening to learn; managing conflict; stages of team development; coaching & mentoring; project planning; and more.

Woodbadge FAQ's

WHERE - Each weekend will be hosted at a different location:

Weekend 1 - Camp Norse, 112 Parting Ways Road, Kingston, MA 02364 

Weekend 2 - 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 will help you better understand how all the Scouting programs tie together. It will provide you with many useful leadership tools to help enable our youth to have the best possible Scouting experience. In addition, you’ll enjoy the fellowship of sharing the experience with other Scouters while having a great deal of just plain fun!

WHEN - Wood Badge is presented in two phases. The first part of the program is the practical phase. This consists of five days over two full weekends (all day Friday, Saturday & Sunday for weekend 1, Saturday/Sunday for Weekend 2) at camp. 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.

Attendance at all five days of the training portion is required to be eligible to earn the Wood Badge recognition.
