Wood Badge Fall 2014: Weekend Two @ The Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center
Sep 20 @ 7:30 am – Sep 22 @ 4:30 pm

Wood Badge is the ultimate leadership training experience designed to meet the leadership needs for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity, and Venturing Leaders as well as district and council leaders. This course is a multifaceted interactive presentation of leadership concepts not only relevant to our values-based Scouting movement, but also widely employed by corporate America and leading government organizations.

The practical portion will be conducted in a pair of three-day, two weekend sessions. Full participation in both weekends is required. Between these two weekends, you will be required to participate in patrol meetings, with the location and time to be determined by each patrol. Upon completion of the practical course, your work continues on an individual basis as you “work your ticket,” a written contract with yourself that must be completed within 18 months in order to earn your Wood Badge Beads.

Additional course details and registration form: WB Trifold . Please contact Fall 2014 Course Director Rusty Carter with questions and concerns: ruscar@sbcglobal.net.
