Wood Badge for the 21st Century is a leadership training course designed for all adult Scouters: Cub Scout Leaders • Boy Scout Leaders • Varsity Leaders • Venturing Leaders • Council / District Leadership • Scouting Professionals. The course incorporates the traditions of over 90 years of Wood Badge, while adding the management and leadership training necessary to be successful as a leader in the 21st century. Wood Badge is more than a classroom–it is games and hands-on projects. You will come away with an appreciation of Scouting's heritage as well as with a vision for the role you will play in its future–the impact you will make on the youth in your own unit at home. Participation in this course will also provide skills to help you achieve success in other aspects of your life...like at home, or in your career! The course is a 2-weekend, fun-filled practical training period where the Scouter lives as a member of a team progressing through Scouting, and learning the skills of leadership. The application phase is completed at home, thru implementing the skills learned by accomplishing a series of self-determined written goals called a “Ticket”.

Directions to Rancho Alegre:
FIRST, do NOT follow any directions you may receive from Google Map, Mapquest, or your GPS. You are guaranteed to get lost. This is because there are several 2680 Hwy. 154 along that road - some ten miles apart. Instead follow these instructions to arrive at the correct location for Rancho Alegre
Take Highway 154 (San Marcos Pass Road) from either the South or the North entrances on Highway 101.

The main entrance to Rancho Alegre is directly opposite the roadside telephone identified as 154 163. The 163 indicates that it is 16.3 miles from the Santa Barbara entrance to Hwy. 154 from Hwy. 101.
From the south, the entrance is on your left. From the north, the entrance is on your right. Continue up the entry road for approximately 1/4 mile to the camp gate.
