Wood Badge 2018 Fall course dates are:
 
First weekend - October 12-14, 2018, second weekend - November 2-4, 2018
 
The course is six full days and attendance throughout both weekends (Fri. thru Sun.) is required to complete the course. Arrival is at 7:00 AM, Friday both weekends. The course ends at approximately 5:45 PM the first Sunday and 3:45 PM the second Sunday. There are 1-2 interim patrol meetings between the two weekends with dates and locations set by individual patrols.
 
Wood Badge is a comprehensive training course started by Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts, to help leaders hone their skills, extend their understanding of the youth they lead and the adults with whom they work, and to reach new levels of personal growth and learning as Scouters. Wood Badge provides advanced training in leadership and teamwork for adult leaders in all Scouting programs. The course is also a whole lot of fun where you can develop deep friendships with fellow leaders.
 
Wood Badge is the ultimate personal and professional growth training program offered by the Boy Scouts of America; it is a national course curriculum delivered locally by Capitol Area Council volunteer staff. Wood Badge is about enhancing your leadership skills through hands-on experience, to help you take those skills back to your unit or District and put them to work to develop effective leaders and youth where you serve. The instructional portion of the course consists of the two weekends at Lost Pines, followed by an 18-month application phase in which each participant completes what is known as their "ticket", a series of personal goals developed during the course.
 

To be eligible for Wood Badge, a participant must be “fully trained” for his or her position in Scouting.  See http://www.scouting.org/filestore/training/pdf/Trained_Leader_Positions.pdf.  Participants also must be prepared for an outdoor experience, although this this won’t be especially challenging.  Cub Scouters are recommended to take BALOO training; Boy Scouters, Varsity and Venturing leaders are recommended to take IOLS training.
