Welcome to the Wood Badge site for Palmetto and Blue Ridge Councils!
In 1911, Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, took the first steps in training Scouting’s adult leaders by organizing a series of lectures for Scouters. He made great strides in the years that followed, culminating in 1919 with the establishment of Wood Badge Training. Wood Badge recipients now number more than 100,000 and can be found in all corners of the world.
As the Course Director of the 2016 Wood Badge Course, I am personally inviting you to join us. Please download the brochure, contact me with any questions, then connect with the Scout Office to sign up. I hope that you will take the first step toward the peak training experience of your Scouting career. I am delighted you are interested and pledge to do all we can make your Wood Badge experience both meaningful and memorable.
Take that first step and sign up to join us in the Fall of 2016 for S5-549-16!
