Online Registration $230: Wood Badge II - All Sections

On behalf of the White Pine Council (WPC), I would like to thank you for your involvement and commitment to Scouting. We all understand the value of formal training in the performance of our roles in Scouting; therefore, I am pleased to extend to you an invitation to join us for a Wood Badge Part II (WB2) training course this April and May, 2017.

As per Scouts Canada’s national policy around training, we should all have completed a Wood Badge Part I in our primary roles by now. The next step would be to complete a Wood Badge Part II to enrich and enhance our knowledge and skill base as well as advance your own leadership skills.

Wood Badge Part II offers a more in-depth look at programming for your Section and will help you run successful programs. You will also learn more about advanced camping and outdoor skills, as well as have an opportunity to network with other Scouters allowing you a chance to learn from each other, share ideas and team build.
 
The total training time is approximately 45 hours and is delivered over the course of two weekends.  WPC is offering WBII for the following sections; Beaver Scouts (Colony), Cub Scouts (Pack), Scouts (Troop) and Venturer Scouts (Company).  The prerequisite for WBII is the completion of Wood Badge Part I for the same section, and either a weekend residential Part 1 course or one year working experience in the section.

The course is
only $230.00 and includes meals, accommodation and training supplies.  Upon full completion of Wood Badge Part II, you will receive a Gilwell necker and beads.

Please consider attending this training course as it will provide you with a wealth of knowledge and skills that will enable you to motivate and lead in the delivery of quality Scouting programs.
