Wood Badge For The 21st Century

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 has evolved into the core leadership skills training course for the BSA. The Wood Badge For The 21st Century course focuses on strengthening every volunteer's ability to work with and lead groups of youth and adults and is less focused on outdoor skills, which are more effectively addressed in other courses.

The Jayhawk Area Council conducts a Wood Badge course every fall during even numbered years at Falley Scout Reservation.  Annually, a Wood Badge Reunion Dinner is held for fun and fellowship.

Upcoming Wood Badge Training Events events of this type are currently posted...
