The Primary Purpose of the Wood Badge experience is simple - to strengthen Scouting in our units, zones and council; because every Scout deserves a trained leader. It provides dedicated Scouters with the concepts, tools and methods needed to be effective leaders.
Wood Badge creates a structured opportunity to develop and apply critical leadership skills. Leadership is a skill that is used everywhere, on a daily basis. Attending Wood Badge will make your Scouting job easier. Attendees gain an in depth understanding of the skills of leadership.
The skills you learn will help you become a more effective leader in Scouting, your career, your family and your community life. In addition, participants will enjoy the fellowship of learning alongside many other volunteers, and along the way have a great deal of fun.
Upon successful completion of all course requirements, and the completion of your personal "Wood Badge Ticket", each participant will receive a certificate of completion, a Wood Badge tartan neckerchief, a leather woggle, and beads to wear proudly around the neck.
