Words of Wisdom from the ASM for Troop Guides

I was a Participant of Wood Badge Course SR604. I had no idea what to expect as the only person involved with our troop with Wood Badge experience had gone through the course many years earlier, what is now known as the Legacy Course. Once I had arrived for the Course start, I became so immersed in the activities of the day that time flew by.

There are many learning experiences that I continue to use in Scouting and other areas of my life that I either learned at Wood Badge or they were reinforced and I recommitted to using the knowledge.

Aside from the knowledge gained, one of the best results of my Wood Badge experience is that my Scouting family has grown so much larger. It is so great to run in to other Scouters that were a part of SR604 that I didn’t have time to get to know then, but now we have time to discuss that great experience.

I, too, am looking forward to this Course, and am sure that it will be one of your best Scouting memories.
