What 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.

Wood Badge Work Day At Peaceful Valley
We have a great opportunity to provide service at Peaceful Valley Scout Camp on May 10th! As part of that service we’ll be able to develop an area strictly for the use of Wood Badge. We’ll also have specific a specific area to store Wood Badge paraphernalia. Which I’m sure that the Quartermasters will love.
The Work Day is scheduled for Saturday, the 10th of May. We need to start at 8am. So please plan your arrival for about 7:45am. Earlier than that and we won’t be ready for you. So you eager Beavers and all other critters don’t need to be there at 6am! The work will still be there at 8am.
We will meet at the old shooting range. Turn left into the 2nd entrance for PV as if you were going to the Dining Hall. Then take the first right to the shooting range. Council will provide us with lunch and dinner. So that they have a count, please go here to register. Get more important information here!
