If you are planning to register as STAFF, registration opens January 1st, 2018.

Note that both weekends are required to complete the course and each weekend begins early MORNING. The first weekend, held Friday through Sunday, will be at Camp Ware (Peach Bottom, PA) and the second weekend, held Saturday through Monday, will be held at Camp Horseshoe (Rising Sun, MD) both on the Horseshoe Scout Reservation.

Course Overview

Wood Badge is for all Scout leaders. It has been developed for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders, as well as council and district leaders. Its focus is on further developing already present leadership skills.  

Course Delivery

The first weekend of the Wood Badge course reflects unit meetings, while the second weekend of the course uses a unit camping activity as its delivery model. During Wood Badge, the model Boy Scout troop will serve as a laboratory for training purposes. This is done for several reasons:
1. The Boy Scout troop simulation provides a good framework in which to practice the leadership skills introduced in the course.
2. Boy Scouting provides a natural bridge between the various programs in Scouting, and leaders should understand the importance of transition.
3. It would be difficult and most likely confusing to simultaneously model Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing in one course.
4. The course content and leadership principles introduced apply to Scouters of all leadership positions and will provide a common foundation of leadership skills to be used throughout all program areas.

Wood Badge Ticket

The primary purpose of the Wood Badge experience is to strengthen Scouting in our units, districts, and local councils. The Wood Badge "ticket" represents your commitment to complete a set of personal goals relating to your Scouting position. These goals will significantly strengthen the program in which you are involved. In addition, the ticket gives you an opportunity to practice and demonstrate a working knowledge of the leadership skills presented during the course. You should complete your Wood Badge ticket no later than 18 months after the course.

Recognition

Upon completion of the Wood Badge ticket, as certified by a ticket counselor and the Scout executive, you will be presented with the Wood Badge certificate, neckerchief, woggle, and beads at an appropriate public ceremony.

Learning Objectives

As a result of attending Wood Badge, you will be able to
-View Scouting globally, as a family of interrelated, values-based programs that provide age-appropriate activities for youth.
-Recognize the contemporary leadership concepts utilized in corporate America and leading government organizations that are relevant to our values-based movement.
-Apply the skills you learn from your participation as a member of a successful working team.
-Revitalize your commitment by sharing in an overall inspirational experience that helps provide Scouting with the leadership it needs to accomplish its mission on an ongoing basis.
