This training offers you a chance to further increase your knowledge and confidence in the section you are working. As well as developing a detailed plan for your section, you will obtain a wealth of tools and "trick of the trade" to take back and make your section meetings a joy to run. There will be comprehensive skills training. You will connect with dozens of Scouters just like you who will have lots to share and you will make a few friends for life. Once the Wood Badge is completed you will be invited to join a local Gilwell Club and an invitation to attend the annual Gilwellian leaders only camp in the second weekend of September every year.
