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 six days of one course or the other. Courses start about 7:00 a.m. on the first day of each weekend and end about 5:00 p.m. on the third day of each weekend.

September 22-24 (at Camp Edward) AND October 6-8 (at Camp Pigott)
Course Director: Kevin Giles
The course takes a full six days, from about 7:00 a.m. the first day to about 5:00 p.m. the third 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.
The fee for the course is $225. You pay at least a $100 deposit when you sign up (not refundable) and the balance no later than 60 days before the course.
