This training is ideal for older Scouts who would like to add excitement and diversity to their Scouting activities, or for adults interested in serving our Scouting youth in a very exciting and rewarding way.  These skills will be valuable as you grow as a leader in school, the workplace, or your Scout unit.

It is a unique opportunity to learn how to develop effective teams and understand group dynamics as well as facilitate the COPE program at Goose Pond.  If you love high adventure and challenge, we want you!

In 1911, Baden-Powell 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 all over the world!
