The Purpose of Wood Badge is to strengthen units.
Wood Badge is an advanced, intense, experiential course on small-group leadership. There are presentations and activities. There are games, but there is no dead time – the games are all with a purpose. The course, and working your ticket afterwards, will help you make your Scouting unit stronger, and will also help you in your work, church, family, and everywhere else.
Wood Badge is for all adults in Scouting, anyone age 18 or older, male or female. It is for people involved with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturing, district, and council.
Participants must attend all five days of one course. Courses start about 7:00 a.m. on the first day of each weekend and end about 5:00 p.m. on the last day of each weekend.

About Wood Badge. The course takes a full five days, from about 7:00 a.m. the first day to about 5:00 p.m. the last day of each week. You must be there for all of both weekends (on the same course). Once you have been on course, that requirement will make a lot of sense.
