What are some of the things that I’ll be doing in Wood Badge?
- Putting the Patrol Method into practice by camping, cooking, and working as a team.
- Camping in a patrol of 6-7 adult leaders.
- Learning and applying different leadership styles and techniques.
- Learning fun and interactive games that work well in your units.

Within this framework, participants take part in numerous presentations, discussions, and activities that explore and advance a wide range of leadership philosophies and tools. A key area is the process of team development, where participants learn to apply appropriate leadership strategies at varying stages of team development.
There are five central themes of the 21st Century Wood Badge course:
- Living the Values
- Bringing the Vision to Life
- Models for Success
- Tools of the Trade
- Leading to Make a Difference.
The first weekend of the course parallels three weeks of a Scout unit’s meetings and activities while the second weekend parallels the experiences of a Scout unit setting out on the fourth week of a month for an exciting and challenging outdoor experience.
