About Wood Badge II

Wood Badge II is the second part of Scouts Canada’s Volunteer development program which directly follows Wood Badge I. As part of Scouts Canada’s 5 Key Priorities for Success, Wood Badge II looks to increase Volunteer Support and Program Quality. Wood Badge II focuses on the practical application of the program facilitation and safety concepts learned in Wood Badge I, while introducing basic outdoor and Scouter support skills.

This training offers you a chance to further increase your knowledge and confidence in the section you are working. As well as developing a detailed plan for your section, you will obtain a wealth of tools and "trick of the trade" to take back and make your section meetings a joy to run. There will be comprehensive skills training. You will connect with dozens of Scouters just like you who will have lots to share and you will make a few friends for life. Once the Wood Badge is completed you will be invited to join a local Gilwell Club and an invitation to attend the annual Gilwellian leaders only camp in the second weekend of September every year.

Self-Directed Learning

Wood Badge II for Canadian Path Self-Directed Learning
Wood Badge II has been revitalized to incorporate Canadian Path methodology, making it more relevant for today’s Scouters. The new Wood Badge II program allows for self-directed learning, conducted through mentorship and coaching in addition to traditional courses and workshops.
The revitalized Wood Badge II framework uses new resources called Scouter Development Cards which can be used to help Volunteers build personal learning plans.

The Scouter Development cards are available at https://www.scouts.ca/resources/support-resources/training-and-development.html
