Wood Badge is the ultimate leadership training experience designed to meet the leadership needs for adults in the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity, and Venturing programs, 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. You’ll experience fellowship of learning in a fun-filled way from volunteers of like-minded Scouters.
The practical portion will be conducted in a pair of three-day, two weekend sessions. 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.
Course size is limited, so registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. We commend you for the job that you are now doing in Scouting, but we are sure that through Wood Badge training you will be able to make an even greater contribution in providing quality leadership that will benefit the Scouting program for our youth. It is our sincere hope that you can arrange your time and commitments to be able to join others for this learning experience. We are confident you will find the time well spent and thoroughly enjoyable.

INTRODUCTION to OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS (IOLS) provides the opportunity for registered adults to learn the basic outdoor Scout skills required to be a leader in a Boy Scout troop or Varsity team.
Outdoor skills are critical to the success of the Scouting program, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will provide leaders with the basic outdoor skills information needed to start a program right. The skills taught are based on the outdoor skills found in The Boy Scout Handbook. The course is also ideal for Boy Scout and Varsity adult leaders because it focuses on skills that build confidence and competence in leaders conducting outdoor camping experiences.
To receive credit for participation and completion of the course you must be present for the whole session.
