You may have heard of Wood Badge, and you may know a Scout Leader who has been to Wood Badge. But you have yet to take the plunge and find out for yourself what Wood Badgers already know. What ever the reason that you have, there will not be a better time than now to attend this Great Scouting adventure called Wood Badge.
You may have asked yourself “Why should I attend Wood Badge?” Let me share with you why we believe there are good reasons to attend.
Every Scout deserves a trained leader. Only a trained leader knows how important this statement really is. Training is the most important step in providing the kind of program that your boys want and deserve.
Knowledge – You will learn contemporary leadership concepts that can be used in all aspects of the BSA programs. Leadership and Scouting Skills that you need to help the Scouts succeed. These are the Same Leadership Skills taught and practiced in many of today’s Fortune 500 Company’s and these lifetime skills are invaluable if practiced in your business, personal or professional life.
Tradition – You will come to know the tradition and history of Wood Badge. Ever since Lord Baden Powell began training adult leaders almost 100 years ago, the meaning of the words ”two tiny wooden beads” has been a tradition and a recognition of the Boy Scout Program. When you attend Wood Badge, you become a link in that chain of tradition reaching back to Baden Powell.
Fellowship – You may never find a place where you can make better or stronger friends than at Wood Badge. The best that Scouting has to offer is found there. Great Scouters with the same common interest, high moral and ethical standards as you, will be there. What a great group of people to call your friends!!
Fun – Join us and be a “kid” again. Experience the adventure of Scouting as seen though the eyes of a youth. Let’s sing those old Campfire songs and enjoy some wacky campfire skits. Find out how to “Deliver the Promise of Scouting” and make it FUN all at the same time.
No matter what your position is in Scouting or in life, Wood Badge is for you. You will become more effective in everything you undertake and will enjoy yourself to a much greater extent.
Our dedicated staff anxiously await your arrival and commit ourselves to providing you a quality program that results in a life changing experience.
Yours in Scouting,
Joel Rodriguez – Course Director Wood Badge 2123
