Wood Badge Reunion
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 100,000 and can be found in all corners of the world.
A Scouter participating in Wood Badge has the opportunity to:
• Understand Scouting as a family of interrelated, values-based programs providing age-appropriate activities for youth.
• Recognize contemporary leadership concepts and discover how they are relevant to the Scouting movement.
• Apply the skills learned as a member of a successful working team.
• Revitalize their commitment to Scouting by sharing in an inspirational experience that provides Scouting with renewed leadership.
Many Scouters consider Wood Badge to be a peak experience of their Scouting careers. It has served as a source of training and inspiration to thousands.
Who may attend the Wood Badge Reunion? Anyone who is eligible to wear the beads regardless of your course location as long as you are a current member of the Stonewall Jackson Area Council.
