The particulars about Wood Badge Course C2-784-18-1:
Wood Badge is intended for all leaders in Scouting—Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Sea Scout, and Venturing leaders, as well as council and district leaders. The focus is on leadership, not out-of-door skills. The object is to demonstrate the aims and methods of Scouting through the presentation of leadership skills, organizational tools, and a variety of activities based on the best of Scouting traditions and the latest in team-development theory. In addition, participants will enjoy the fellowship of sharing the experience with volunteer and professional Scouters, while having a great deal of just plain fun.
This course will be conducted at the Silver Trails Scout Reservation in two, three-day, sessions. The course dates for C2-784-18-1 are:
- First Weekend – February 2 through February 4, 2018.
- Second Weekend – February 23 through February 25, 2018.
The participants and staff will be sleeping in cabins. While we will be outside from time to time, the majority of the course will be taught indoors.
The cost of the course is $275.00. Payment to be submitted in full or as follows:
Deposit with application, $100.00
Second payment of $100.00 by December 14, 2015 (50 days prior to course start)
Balance by December 31, 2017 (33 days prior to course).
BSA Membership fees will be raised to $33 per year beginning on December 1, 2017. The increase applies to both scouts and adult leaders and is for the year 2018. Therefore, when you recharter your unit this fall you need to pay $33 plus $1 insurance for every scout and adult leader.
However, since the increase is for the year 2018 and is not effective until December 1, we will continue to use the current fee of $25/year plus $1 insurance for any scouts or leaders that join in September, October or November. 2017. However, the amount you pay for the new scout/leader is pro-rated because the year ends December 31.
Example: If a scout or adult leader joins in September–turn in a payment of $8 plus $1 insurance (total = $9) with the application to cover them until the end of 2017. When you add them to your charter for 2018, you will pay $33 and $1 insurance for them to cover next year regardless if they joined in September, October or November.
The pro-rated fee for scouts joining in October is $6 and $1 insurance. For November, it is $4 and $1 insurance.
DO NOT HOLD ONTO NEW SCOUT APPLICATIONS JUST BECAUSE WE ARE RECHARTERING OVER THE NEXT 3 MONTHS. TURN ALL NEW APPLICATIONS AND PRO-RATED FEES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
