What is Wood Badge?
Wood Badge is the premier adult training program of the Boy Scouts of America. It teaches
contemporary leadership and team development skills in an outdoor setting. Its purpose is to
aid Scouters in providing a quality program that will enable Scouts to grow to their greatest potential.
The course encompasses key concepts of management skills, from leaders in the management field;
therefore, this course can be helpful not only in your Scouting job, but also in your career, personal
and religious life.
In 2018, Three Fires Council has been selected to be a Centennial Wood Badge Pilot Course.
We will present a brand new curriculum including the latest in leadership and management programs.
One of the immediate changes from past courses is eliminating one day from the course, the Friday
program on Weekend Two. More information on the new syllabus will be sent to registered participants
prior to the course.
