WoodBadge

Wood Badge

Wood Badge is Scouting's premier training course. Baden-Powell 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. The members of the course are formed into patrols and these into a troop.  The entire troop camps in the outdoors, camping, cooking their own meals, and practices Scout skills while honing their leadership and teamwork.

This year's course will be hosted by The Spirit of Adventure Council on March 26-28, 2021 at New England Base Camp in Milton, MA and on April 17-18, 2021 at one of our New Hampshire camps.
