Wood Badge is Scouting's premier training course. It's the ultimate leadership
training experience designed to meet the leadership needs for all Cub Scout,
Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders as well as Council and District
leaders and Scouting professionals.
Lord Baden-Powell originally designed it so that Scouters could learn, in as
practical a way possible, the skills and methods of Scouting. It is first and foremost,
learning by doing.
Wood Badge has evolved into the core leadership skills training course for the BSA.
The Wood Badge course focuses on strengthening every volunteer's ability to
work with and lead groups of youth and adults and is less focused on outdoor
skills, which are more effectively addressed in other courses.
