Wood Badge Course W3-55-14-1

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
best of Scouting traditions and the latest of team-development theory. In addition, participants

1911年,貝登堡爵士舉辦了一系列講座,是為童軍成人服務員訓練的濫觴。隨後幾年中, 訓練課程不斷更新充實,最終在1919年發展為木章訓練。全世界各地迄今完成訓練,獲頒
木章者逾十萬人次,對童軍活動發展,發揮了重大的積極影響。

在為期六天(兩個週末)的課程中,我們一起探討領導統御的原則與技巧,發展組織的理 論與工具,配合各種活動,回歸童軍運動基本的願景,宗旨和方法。同時,學員們將享受
到與許多志同道合的夥伴,一起學習與分享的樂趣。

這個極佳的機會,可以讓您:

•    了解童軍這個大家庭,為青少年提供許多以價值觀為基礎的適齡活動。
•    接觸當代被美國企業和政府組織採用的領導統御概念,並瞭解它們如何和童軍活動相 互聯繫。
•    應用您從親身參與成功的工作小組,學到的技能與理論,順利完成童軍活動的任務。
•    重新激發自己對童軍運動的承諾與熱忱,正像許多童軍先進,參加木章訓練的經驗成 為他們童軍經歷中的高峰,精神大受鼓舞激勵,從而影響無數青年的人生。

我們真誠地希望您可以撥冗來參加。您將充分享受課程的分分秒秒,並從中獲益良多。您 也許已經因為現在從事的童軍工作受到讚揚,但木章訓練將使您大開眼界,並對童軍活動 做出更重大更深遠的貢獻。

本次木章課程將在2014年4月11至13日和4月25至27日兩個周末,於Camp Pico Blanco (41398 Palo Colorado Road, Monterey,
California) 舉行。我們期望您儘快寄回報名表及$225.00支票 到主辦本次訓練的SVMB童軍理事會,以免向隅。謹此。敬祝
