WOOD BADGE 2012 W1-606-12

It is with great pleasure that I extend to you a personal invitation to
participate in Wood Badge. It is the ultimate leadership training
experience designed to meet the leadership needs for all Cub Scout, Boy
Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders as well as council and
district leaders and Scouting professionals.
In this course, you will learn contemporary leadership concepts utilized
in corporate America and leading government organizations that are
relevant to our values based Scouting movement.
The formal training portion of the six-day, two-weekend course will be
conducted at Fire Mountain Scout Camp. The dates of the course are:
Thursday through Saturday, September 6-8 AND September 27-29.
Your training materials, food and lodging will be provided.
The first part of the Wood Badge course reflects unit meetings, while the
second part represents a unit camping activity.
After completion of the six days at camp, course work continues on an
individual basis as you “work your ticket”, a written service contract
with yourself that must be completed within 18 months.
I commend you for the commitment you've already made in behalf of
Scouting, but I am sure, through Wood Badge training, that you will be
able to make an even greater contribution to the benefit of our youth. It
is my sincere hope that you can arrange your time and other obligations
so you can join us on course. I am absolutely certain you will find the
time well spent and thoroughly enjoyable.

• Be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America. There are
no minimum tenure requirements.
• Have completed the basic training courses for their Scouting
