Wood Badge History
In 1911 Baden-Powell took the first steps in training Scouting’s adult leaders by organizing a series of lectures for Scouters. He made great strides in the years that followed, culminating with the establishment of Wood Badge training in 1919. Wood Badge recipients now number more than 100,000 and can be found in all corners of the world. Scouters participating in Wood Badge have the opportunity to:
- Understand Scouting as a family of interrelated, value-based programs providing age-appropriate activities for youth.
- Recognize contemporary leadership concepts and discover how they are relevant to the Scouting movement.
- Apply the skills learned as a member of a successful working team.
- Revitalize their commitment to Scouting by sharing in an inspirational experience that provides Scouting with renewed leadership.
Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be a peak experience of their Scouting careers.
It has served as a source of training and inspiration to thousands.
