In 1911, Baden-Powell took his first steps in training Scouting’s adult leaders by organizing a series of lectures. The first Wood Badge training session was held in 1919. Since then, Wood Badge training has continued to evolve in order to meet Scouting’s needs. Wood Badge focuses on preparing adults to deliver the mission of Scouting.
- Acquire contemporary leadership concepts and discover how these apply to the Scouting program.
- Understand Scouting as a family of interrelated, value-based programs providing age appropriate activities for youth.
- Revitalize your commitment to Scouting by sharing in an inspirational experience.

Wood Badge Scholarship Campaign Started to assist attendees
Lincoln Trails Council has started a Wood Badge Scholarship Support Campaign. The objective of the funds raised would be to make Wood Badge training available to individuals who may otherwise not be able to attend due to financial reasons. The fund will be used solely for providing scholarships, and any excess funds will be carried over to help future recipients. Gifts of $100 or more will receive one of 100 limited edition Lincoln Trails Council Wood Badge Scholarship patches! Download the form below to help support this new initiative!
