Wood Badge, the “ultimate” adult leader training program, involves leaders in a situation likely to be found in a typical Scout unit. The training is applied in a variety of activities as well as in-depth exploration of the role of the adult in developing youth through the Scout Program. Cornhusker Council is planning to host the next Wood Badge Course in the Spring of 2022. The course will be held at the Outdoor Education Center near Walton, NE over two sessions(participants must attend both sessions).
The Wood Badge is more than just mechanical coursework. Wood Badge is the embodiment of the Scouting spirit. Like many intense training experiences, it has always relied on a busy schedule forcing the participants to work together, to organize and to develop an enthusiasm and team spirit to accomplish the tasks and challenges placed before them.
Carried out in context of Scouting ideals and service to young people, the course brings out a sincere dedication and spirit of fellowship in most participants. Wood Badge is designed to give Scouters the tools they need to provide the highest quality Scouting experience for the youth in their units. It is based on contemporary leadership and team building concepts, and is designed for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders, as well as District and Council leaders.

The registration for the 2022 training is will open soon.
We encourage units to assist Scouters with the cost of the course. However, if unit assistance is not sufficient, the prospective participant should contact the Course Director for scholarship availability.
