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 a
hundred thousand, and can be found in all corners of the world.
The objective of a Wood Badge course is to demonstrate as practically as possible the aims and
methods of Scouting. Six days (two weekends) in duration, the course is a multi-faceted
presentation of leadership skills, organizational tools, and participatory activities based on the
