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.
