Wood Badge is the Highest Level of Adult Scout Leader Training

♫ “Back to Gilwell O’Happy Land… 
I’m Going to work my Ticket if I can.” ♫ 

Wood Badge is the highest level of adult Scout leader training available in the World. The first Wood Badge training was organized by Francis “Skipper” Gidney and lectured by Robert Baden-Powell and others at Gilwell Park in the UK in September of 1919. The first course in America was held at Schiff Scout Reservation in 1948. Scouters wanting to take the course must be fully position trained with current YPT. All levels of Scouts BSA are encouraged to take this high-level training. Wood Badge is set up as a 6-day course. One full week or two full weekends of training. After completing the course members of Troop 1 start working their “ticket” to complete the training. On completion, the Scouter is awarded the Gilwell Wood beads, neckerchief, and woggle. Warning, this is high-level training. I have seen it change people’s point of view of the world. Your critter and patrol members will become a special part of your scouting life.
