Scouting promises every boy that he can be involved in a program that is both exciting and physically challenging, and that he can learn and grow to be a leader, to shape his own future, and to help others shape their futures.  Scouts are tomorrow's citizens and leaders.

We, as adult Scouters, must "Deliver the Promise."  It takes time, effort, discipline, patience, and love.

Wood Badge training follows the guide developed by the BSA to insure the highest quality training conducted by a fully trained and skilled staff selected for their abilities to deliver top notch instruction and inspiration.  Now is the time for those who have not experienced Wood Badge to make the decision to enroll and experience what this training has to offer.

When & Where:    The course will be conducted at Camp George Thomas, near Apache, Oklahoma.  The dates will be as follows:

1st Weekend Meeting September 6-8, 2002
2nd Weekend Meeting September 27-29, 2002

There will be two "Midweek Patrol Meetings " between the first and second weekend of the course. The location, time and date will be at the convenience of the patrols.
