Who May Attend Wood Badge?

Wood Badge is advanced leadership training for adult leaders in all of Boy Scouting’s program areas - Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting and Venturing - as well as Council and District leaders. This includes assistant leaders, committee members, and “just parents” in all areas.

All leaders are encouraged to attend Wood Badge, there is no minimum tenure requirements.

Since it is advanced training, though, there are some important requirements. You must

  1. Be a registered as an adult leader of the Boy Scouts of America, and active in a Cub Scout pack, Boy Scout troop, Varsity team, Venturing crew, or a District or Council position.
  2. Have completed basic training for the position you currently hold
  3. Have completed the outdoor skills training programs appropriate to your Scouting position
  4. Be capable of functioning safely in an outdoor environment and have a BSA Medical Form valid through the end of the course.

Bring your Scouting spirit and a desire to learn and grow in your knowledge of Scouting and yourself. It will be a great experience!

If you have not taken the basic leader training required for your position you can become trained at one of the many training opportunities being offered by the Council and District training staff.

If you have any questions about Wood Badge feel free to contact Course Director, Meg Struttman, or contact the Council Service Center
