In preparation of the Wood Badge Centennial in 2020, the Wood Badge program is being updated. Only a handful of pilot programs are available across the nation and the Utah National Parks Council has been given the opportunity to host one of these courses. We’re so excited to have our Scouters be pioneers in shaping the future of leadership training.
The best and most effective changes start with individuals. The skill and leadership principles taught and practiced at Wood Badge are applicable to all aspects of life, including marriage, parenting, work and church responsibilities. Skills like these are taught in higher education courses, large corporations and world-class training programs, but you can get it all with a Scout’s thrifty pricing.
