Wood Badge - 2017

Wood Badge is the Greater Los Angeles Area Council's ultimate adult leadership training program. Reflecting the best of nearly a century of Scouting experience and tradition, the course also draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor leadership organizations throughout the country.

All BSA registered adult leaders, who have completed the basic training courses and required leader specific training for their currently registered position, may attend Wood Badge. Participants must complete a BSA class 3 physical prior to attending the course. Multi-media presentations delivered by Scouting's most dynamic trainers, hands-on activities, learning experiences, and games bring the concepts to life and demonstrate how you can bring those concepts home to your Scouting position.
