First Weekend: Feburary 28 - March 2nd, 2025
Second Weekend: March 8 - 9, 2025

Wood Badge is the ultimate leadership training program for the adult leaders of the Boy Scouts of America. Established in 1919 by Robert Baden-Powell, Scouting's founder, Wood Badge has been the training ground for hundreds of thousands of Scouters around the world. Wood Badge brings together leaders from all areas of Scouting — Cub Scouting, Scouting, Venturing and all levels of BSA professional staff. The course draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor leadership organizations throughout the country.

Our next Wood Badge course will be 5 days long. The first weekend is Friday-Sunday, February 28-March 2, 2025 and the second weekend is Saturday-Sunday, March 8-9. Both weekends start promptly at 8 am the first day and lasts until late Sunday afternoon. Participants are required to attend all days on both weekends. If you would like more information on the course or would just like to speak with the Scoutmaster, the contact information is below.
