Wood Badge at  Worth Ranch

Wood Badge is the premier adult leadership development course for the Boy Scouts of America.

Wood Badge teaches contemporary leadership and team-building skills in a comfortable outdoor setting, where learners become members of their own Troop. Wood Badge’s effectiveness as an effective leadership development experience has been applauded by industry training professionals. Its positive influence on graduates’ individual unit-level program is unparalleled.

Wood Badge is, first and foremost, learning by doing.  Participants in the course are formed first into a Pack, bridge over into a Troop, and finally are inducted into a Venturing Crew, just as Scouts move up through the Scouting program.  The courses are open to all adult Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity, and Venturing leaders and district and council volunteers 18 years of age and older that have completed Basic Training for their position and are capable of handling the hectic, physically demanding course schedule.

The ultimate purpose of Wood Badge is to help adult leaders deliver the highest quality Scouting program to young people to help them achieve their highest potential. It models the best techniques for developing leadership and teamwork among both young people and adults.
