 Woodbadge comes to Blackhawk Area Council, 1971


After the 1971 camp season, the very first Wood Badge course was held in August at Camp Lowden.
It was a full-weekcourse with Robert I. Walter as course director.
Other Blackhawk staffers were Russ Reimer and Hank Stewart. 

In that course were several from out-of-council, but council scouters included:

  • Gale Schmig
  • Ben Adams
  • George Ames
  • Bryce Russell
  • Dennis Hayes
  • Lenny Peterson
  • Irv Stewart
  • George Spengler
  • Ev Worrell

This course paved the way for the many that have followed.
