Wood Badge is for all leaders in the Boy Scouts of America. It has been developed for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout and Venturing leaders, as well as council and district leaders. The course content and leadership principles learned will provide a common foundation of leadership skills to be used throughout all program areas.


Each person participating in Wood Badge training must be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America and have completed the basic training courses for his/her Scouting position, and must provide a completed BSA Annual Health & Medical Record (Sections A, B, and C with a doctor’s signature).


Wood Badge is, further, Scouting’s premier training course. Baden-Powell 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. The members of the course are formed into patrols and these into a troop. The entire troop lives in the out-of-doors for a week, camping, cooking their own meals, and practicing Scout skills.
