Denver Area Council Wood BadgeWhat Is Wood Badge?

Wood Badge is Scouting's premier training course. It's the ultimate leadership training experience designed to meet the leadership needs for all Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders as well as council and district leaders and Scouting professionals.

Lord Baden-Powell originally designed it so that Scouters could learn, in as practical a way possible, the skills and methods of Scouting. It is first and foremost, learning by doing.

?Why Should You Attend Wood Badge

It will give you tools in area’s of leadership, better communication, team building, teacher, project management and problem solving. Read what others say!!
