Advanced Adult Leadership Training for the new Millenium











Scouting promises every youth that they can be involved in a program that is both exciting and physically challenging, and that they can learn and grow to be a leader, to shape their own future, and to help others shape their futures. Scouts are tomorrow's citizens and leaders. We, as adult Scouters, must "Deliver the Promise."  It takes time, effort, discipline, patience and love. Wood Badge training follows the guide developed by the BSA to insure the highest quality training conducted by a fully trained and skilled staff selected for their abilities to deliver top notch instruction and inspiration. Now is the time for those who have not experienced Wood Badge to make the decision to experience what this training has to offer.
