What is Wood Badge?
In 1911, Baden-Powell took his first steps in training Scouting’s adult leaders by organizing a series of lectures. The first Wood Badge training session was held in 1919. Since then, Wood Badge training has continued to evolve in order to meet Scouting’s needs. Wood Badge focuses on preparing adults to deliver the mission of Scouting.
