What is Wood Badge?

Wood Badge for the 21st Century, is the premier training program for all Scout leaders in the Boy Scouts of America. This includes all Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity and Venturing Leaders, as well as Professional Scouters. Wood Badge is designed to train adult volunteers using the latest leadership skills and techniques. It is once in a life time training experience.

Reflecting the best of nearly a century of Scouting experience, the course draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor organizations throughout the country. This new version builds on the best traditions and experiences of Wood Badge, but also draws from a wide range of sources within and beyond the bounds of Scouting to present the latest in leadership theory and team development.
