Sign up at the Scout Center.

 On the morning of September 8, 1919, a 61 year old retired general of the British Army stepped out into the center of a clearing at Gilwell Park, in Epping Forest, outside London, England. He raised to his lips the horn of a Greater Kudu, one of the largest of African antelopes. He blew a long sharp blast. Nineteen men dressed in short pants and knee socks, assembled by patrols for the first Scoutmasters’ training camp held at Gilwell. The camp was designed and guided by Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the World Scouting Movement.

When they had finished their training together, Baden-Powell gave each man a simple wooden bead from a necklace he had found in South Africa in 1888. The Scoutmasters’ training course was a great success and continued to be held year-after-year. At the end of each course the wooden beads were used to recognize the completion of training. When the original beads ran out, new ones were whittled to maintain the tradition established by Baden-Powell. Because of these beads, the course came to be known as the Wood Badge Course. It continues to this day in England and around the world as the advanced training course for leaders in Scouting.

Wood badge Training is currently held once a year in the fall. Wood badge is for both Cub Scout and Boy Scout leaders. This Training  class is done over two three day weekends. The first week focus is on Leadership and is held indoors. The second weekend is held outdoors where the focus is on outdoor skills and camping.
Wood badge is Scouting's high leadership award. Awarded are a: neckerchief, round slide,  leather necklace and the Wood badge beads.   For completing the Wood badge Training one is I awarded the Wood Badge.
They are also now a honorary Scout of Troop one of Gilwell of the ___ patrol.

Goals of Scouting:

The Boy Scouts of America, founded in 1910, provides an effective educational program for boys and young adults, designed to:
                Build moral strength and character
                Encourage fitness
                Prepare boys for the responsibilities of citizenship

     Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouting, said that "Scouting is a
     game with a purpose." The game is our fun and exciting program, but the
      purpose is to prepare boys to become better adults.

Boys, families, leaders, and chartered organizations work together to achieve

                Character development
                Spiritual growth
                Good citizenship
                Sportsmanship
                Family understanding
                Respectful relationships
                Personal achievement
                Friendly service
                Fun and adventure
                Preparation for Boy Scouts

The Ideals of Cub Scouting

            We achieve these purposes by teaching the ideals of Cub Scouting, which
            are represented by the Cub Scout Promise, Law, and motto.
