Wood Badge

Wood Badge 2019

Earn Your Beads

Wood Badge is the premier adult leader training program in Scouting. The program highlights personal and unit-level leadership development with courses in team building, problem solving, communication, conflict resolution and many other useful skills. These skills can be taken directly back to packs, troops, ships, crews and teams to help leaders guide youth in dynamic Scouting programs. Wood Badge is a fun, challenging and inspirational Scouting experience for all leaders who wish to improve their leadership skills.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • Stronger units. You will make your Scouting unit — and your sons’ and daughters’ units — stronger.

  • What and why of Scouting. You will have a deeper understanding of what Scouting is and why we do it.

  • Experience. You will learn and experience things that will stay with you in Scouting and the rest of your life.

  • Fun. You will have fun and you will meet interesting people.

  • Other groups. You will make your other groups, like work, church, even family, stronger.


Have you heard of “The Ticket” and wondered what it is? The ticket is a group of five goals you set for yourself to do after course, to improve your unit. You learn more about this on the course.
