Wood Badge

Wood Badge is the premier adult leadership development course for the Boy Scouts of America. It teaches contemporary leadership and team-building skills in a comfortable outdoor setting, where learners become members of their own Troop. Wood Badge’s effectiveness as a leadership development experience has been applauded by industry training professionals. Its positive influence on graduates’ individual unit - level program is unparalleled.

Many adult leaders characterize Wood Badge as one of the most enriching and rewarding learning experiences.

    Pikes Peak Council and the Wood Badge Scouters of the Council strongly believe no eligible Scouter should have to
    forego attending Wood Badge training because of lack of funds. A Wood Badge Scholarship Fund has been established to provide financial assistance to those who would not otherwise be able to attend this training. Obtain the scholarship application at this link:  WB Scholarship-app_fillable.pdf
