Training Beyond the Basics; Be a Better Leader

It may be hot now, but Autumn is just around the corner and so is Wood Badge - the top training course for adult leaders. It's for new and experienced Scouters alike. Past participants rave, saying it "made me a better leader," it "helped me turn my troop around," and it's "one of the best training experiences I have had."
