Scouts who will be at least age 12 and First Class by July 2013, and for the first time, male and female Venturers, are invited to join the Daniel Webster Council contingent trip to the 2013 National Jamboree at the brand-new Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia.

And for Lost Explorers
Wood Badge for the 21st Century is a leadership development program for adult leaders from all of Scouting’s programs… Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity, and Venturing… as well as those who serve Scouting at the district or council level. Most Scouters who have taken the training will gladly tell you that Wood Badge is one of the best experiences they have ever had! You don’t have to be a veteran Scouter to take Wood Badge… just someone looking to develop your own skills and be inspired to do your best!
This year’s Fall Course will take place on September 14-16 and September 28-30 (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays). Contact Course Director Elaine Boyd with questions.
