You are invited to join us, and find your own Adventure !


Background

The first Wood Badge course was held at Gilwell Park outside London, England from September 8th to 19th in 1919. Although the founder of the World Scouting Movement, Robert Baden-Powell, had outlined the course syllabus, he did not lead the course.  He left that task to others he had trained, who brought the same dedication to their program and its continuing success.  The participants enjoyed good weather, except for one heavy thunderstorm which, as a participant wrote, “had its instructive value also!”  The roster of the first Wood Badge course numbered 20 Scouters.  The men were organized into three patrols, each one taking his turn as patrol leader, “second,” “bottom” and the other turns in the order of patrol jobs, including cooking.

Over the years, the Wood Badge syllabus has changed with the times, but still symbolizes the pinnacle of Scouter training.  It is the only training award that can be earned in every Scouting organization tied to the World Scouting Movement.   Scouters from all over the globe carry beads.

The tradition continues in the Spring of 2019, as a cluster of Central and Eastern Massachusetts Scout Councils will present the Wood Badge course at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation in Rutland MA.  The Wood Badge experience creates an opportunity for you to develop and apply critical leadership skills.  The skills you will learn will help you become a more effective leader in Scouting, your career, and your community.

Who can attend?

To attend Wood Badge, Scouters must:

  • Be registered adult members of the Boy Scouts of America
  • Have completed basic training for your current Scouting position
  • Be capable of functioning safely in an outdoor environment

What can you expect?

When you attend Wood Badge, you will:

  • See Scouting as a family of inter-related, values-based programs providing skill and character development at an age-appropriate level to our youth.
  • Experience the stages of team development, and practice the leadership skills appropriate for those stages.
  • Become familiar with contemporary team building and leading concepts.
  • Have fun in the company of interesting, like-minded individuals from other facets of the Scouting program.

Kernel Academy

Kernel Academy

Training session for Unit Popcorn Kernels

There are plenty of corny popcorn puns to pop, but being a Unit Colonel Kernel is no laughing matter!

It was that fateful third Tuesday night, Committee Meeting. There you were, someone asked you to bring the snack last week and, silly you, you did! Now, you mentioned you could reserve the space for that Bottle & Can Drive. The Cubmaster and Treasurer look at each other with an almost sinister smile. They say Popcorn would be right up your alley, well – how hard could it be!?

Fear not – this years Kernel Academy aims to teach both the basics as well as best practices, tips, and tricks, of the Mohegan Council Popcorn Fundraiser so that you will be in-the-know before the sale begins, including –

  • Schedule & Timeline
  • Unit Commission Program
  • Tracking & Submitting Orders
  • Conducting Show & Sells
  • Door-to-Door & Take-Order Selling
  • Best Practices

There will still be a Kickoff event on Thursday, August 16 in which all units must be represented at to participate in the Unit Commission Program. 


Unit Commission Program & Unit Kernel Registration Form

By participating in the Unit Commission Program, units have the potential to earn as much as 33% of their Scout’s sales in complete profit to be used as they see fit for unit adventures, off setting the costs of camps, etc. A Unit Kernel who manages the sale within a unit, including collecting orders, money, and prize orders from their Scouts, is required to begin the Unit Commission Program.

All Mohegan Council Scouts and families are able to participate in the fundraiser to earn prizes and help support Scouting in Central MA. Scouts selling from units not participating in the Unit Commission Program will be able to retrieve and return materials from the Council Service Center.

If your unit is not planning to participate in the program in 2018 – please indicate this.
