WHAT IS WOOD BADGE?

Wood Badge is the premier training program for all Scout Leaders in the Boy Scouts of America.  Wood Badge is designed to train adult volunteers to use the latest leadership skills and techniques.  Formed by Robert Baden-Powell in 1919, Wood Badge will be celebrating its 100th season of training adults in 2018.  The Flint River Council's 2018 course will be a once in a lifetime training experience.  The theme of the 2018 Wood Badge Course is "Lighting a Fire.  Join the course; be part of the 100-year legacy.

There are two parts to the Wood Badge course: 

The first part consists of two weekends (Friday-Sunday) of practical experience where you have the opportunity to learn skills and concepts.

The second part is a plan to apply what you learned in the pratical course.

WHY WOOD BADGE?

1-Scouts will benefit; you will benefit; your family will benefit; your career will benefit; and the world around you will benefit.  You will learn leadership skills and techniques that will enhance the Scouting program at all levels, but that will also transcend Scouting and affect your life in immeasurable ways..

2-You'll have FUN!  Wood Badge brings out the best in all of us.  You will make lifelong Scouting friends and have the time of your life.

3-Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be a major milestone in their Scouting experience.  It has inspired them to be more effective in serving the youth in their units, districts and councils.  I has changed Scouter's home lives and work lives.  Wood Badge is a true "mountain top experience."
