Woodbadge at The Summit

Experience Woodbadge at The Summit!

Wood Badge is the Boy Scouts of America’s ultimate leadership training program for adults. This course at The Summit offers a six-day immersion in the theory, practice and experience of skills for leading others within Scouting and in other environments beyond Scouting. The program is suitable for all Scout leaders, whether in Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting & Scouts BSA, Venturing, or district or council roles.



2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Wood Badge course, which was first organized by the founder of Scouting, Robert Baden-Powell. Over 100,000 adult Scouters around the world have participated in a course. Upon successful completion of all course requirements, a participant receives the Wood Badge – two wooden beads worn around the neck on a leather strand. Many adults consider Wood Badge to be a mountaintop experience in their Scouting careers.  What location could be more fitting for a course than the hills of West Virginia at BSA’s Summit Bechtel Reserve!
