Join the Wood Badge Tradition
Established in 1919 by Scouting founder Baden-Powell, Wood Badge has been the training ground for hundreds of thousands of Scouters throughout the world. It is the only internationally recognized training award. 

Into the 21st Century
Wood Badge is continually monitored and improved by expert volunteers from across the country. It draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor leadership organizations. You will become a more valued team member at work, worship, and volunteering. Employers recognize Wood Badge as worthy personal and leadership development

Wood Badge Recognition
The Wood Badge beads and neckerchief are internationally recognized. Participants receive their Wood Badge certificate, beads, neckerchief, and woggle upon completion of a personal ticket.  The ticket is a contract with yourself; it consists of five goals that you set. You must finish your ticket within 18 months of completing the course.

Attend Again!
Even if you have participated on a Wood Badge course in the past, you are welcome to attend again! The revised Wood Badge for the 21st Century was introduced in 2002. If you earned your beads in the previous course, you will benefit all over again from participating in Wood Badge, and you will have the same great fun! Contact the Course Director for more details.

College Credit • CEU • PDU
Wood Badge training qualifies you for professional advancement credits. Many employers recognize Wood Badge as useful training. You will have a choice of presenting your employer with three Continuing Education Units (CEU) or three Professional Development Units (PDU). College credit may also be available; contact the Course Director.
