The format for the Wood Badge Course is two 3-day weekends, separated by three to four weeks. In the Sam Houston Area Council, the first weekend is scheduled at the Camp Strake Conference Center. All meals will be served in the Dining Hall and participants will be housed in Conference Center Dorms.
This program focuses on leadership and 'people' skills, and not Scoutcraft or outdoor skills. Participants will learn techniques to make them better leaders, and also how to lead groups to achieve objectives.
