What is Wood Badge?

WOOD BADGE is the advanced scout leader training course. Begun in 1919 by Lord Baden-Powell, founder of Scouting and Wood Badge’s first director, it came to America in 1948. Continually updated to reflect the current BSA policies and programs, incorporate the latest material and utilize the techniques available, Wood Badge has become the most advanced leadership training course in Scouting!

To learn more about the opportunities in Wood Badge Training and the Council Wood Badge Course, please visit the course for this year!

The web site is a legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.  
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to 2002 and run by volunteers.  As the web became more important to Scouting, the council took over with paid staff.  This site is no longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting web site.    You can share your comments
