Welcome to Wood Badge

Wood Badge is the Ultimate Adult Leadership Training Program. Reflecting the best of over a century of Scouting experience but recently updated with the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor leadership organizations, this is the training you need to deliver the best experience for your Scouts.

Multi-media presentations delivered by Scouting’s most dynamic trainers, hands-on activities, team-learning experiences, and games bring the concepts to life and demonstrate how you can bring those ideas home to your Pack, Troop, Crew, Ship, and Post. Learning Leadership skills isn’t all there is to Wood Badge. You will experience Wood Badge magic. The magic is all of those unforgettable moments you share with your classmates. Moments that inspire and motivate you; that light a truly long-lasting fire of Scouting spirit that you can bring home to make the program better than you ever imagined it could be. The magic makes Wood Badge a life-changing experience for hundreds of thousands of Scouters.  Wood Badge in the United States is the highest level of adult Scout leader training available.
