I took this course last summer and had the time of my life! It's not just about Scouting, it's a course in group dynamics and management, project management and personal motivation.

I highly recommend it to all leaders, not just for Scout Leadership, but more importantly, for personal growth. I guarantee the same training you receive would cost you thousands if taken at another venue and you wouldn't have near the entertainment.

This course is a gas, and, the second weekend, you get to camp... without any kids... just you and other adults having fun!

Enjoyed the last part of the course - coaching and mentoring and the Scoutmaster's wrap - up. it put everything into perspective. The goals really help us practice what we learned.

I learned a lot about Cub Scouts and some about Varsity through my peers and the projects.

It was an awesome, out-of-this world experience that I will remember for the rest of my life! We had a real "PERFORMING" PATROL!

What didn't I learn! That was a great training program. Great uses of audio visual, learning materials, use of methodology. It was just plain and simple a great training. I walked away with a great understanding of my own potential. I look forward to sharing what I have gained.

I think going through Wood Badge this year I was able to grow as a leader. I came away with countless new skills, as well as a better appreciation of the Boy Scouting program. The course director and staff were outstanding. They gave many hours of their personal lives to make our experience memorable. Each staff member gave us all the tools to be successful, as well as encouraged us along the way. The courses design was excellent and gave all participants a chance to be part of patrol/troop, so we can see the program through the eyes of young people. That gave us a better understanding of what the young people go through every day. Finally, I will always cherish the times I spent at Wood Badge. I made new friends and came away a different person. A better person.

I would recommend this course to any one in Scouting, but would also say it would be a quality leadership course for any one in team/management positions.

The course was amazing!!! Had such an awesome experience. Short of a little more protein in the morning, and a snack bar to cater to my every whim, nothing could have been better!!

You did a great job. No need to pay $3000 for that Saturday executive leadership, or camping mini MBA, blah, blah, blah course. I think this one had it all!

I have not had this much fun in a long time. I am glad to be here and to be an Owl! I wish I could go through this program again! (maybe as a staff member . . . someday??) :)

Keep up the good work! I had a great time despite being from another council, I felt very welcome. I am grateful to have gotten to know everyone here. I have made lifelong friends. I plan on keeping in touch! Now off to work my ticket.

The whole experience was great and you can tell that a lot of time and planning went into this. We only had to give up two weekends but staff gave up a lot more. In speaking with many of the other Wood Badge participants, they understood the sacrifice staff gave, so we could all have this great experience. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Overall I think the course was awesome and had a really great time, found myself doing things I would never have done before....like talking or acting out a skit in front of all those people. Would love to take it again just because of the friendships that were made during the course. Very inspirational!!!

I have not yet recovered from Wood Badge. It was a phenomenal training and I loved that every day I didn't know how the day flew by . . . . and, I didn't want it to end! Thank you, you are all amazing individuals and I am a better person (or a beaver) for going through the course and meeting everyone. And, having as much fun as if I was at camp and a kid. Seriously we need more "fun with a purpose camp for adults"! :)
