Venturers in Wood Badge in Wood Badge and adult leader training Posted June 20, 2004 My council's wood badge training recently came to a close, and I'm proud to say that I was a part of it. A handful of Venture youth scattered across the council, myself included, spent the last 3 days of Wood Badge in one of the patrols (go Bears!), helping to explain such things as the fundamentals of a leave-no-trace campsite, as well as running a problem solving round robin as one of the training modules. I must admit, I didn't know what to expect going into it, but I came out of it with a good experience and a fun weekend to talk about for quite a while. Venture Crew 1 (of course, the number 1;)) even made their own flag to accompany the other patrols' flags-- we became the Mad Cows, with a very 'enthusiastic,' very constipated-sounding "Moo000ooo" as our cheer. All in all, a good weekend. I don't know if involving Venture youth in the Wood Badge training is a standard thing or not, but I don't think it would hurt the program in any way. Actually, I think everyone there last weekend quite enjoyed it, and to be honest, being a girl who just happens to be in Ventures, it taught me a few things about how the Boy Scout program runs. *shrug* No real point to this post... just thought I'd share.
