The Wood Badge is awarded to adults in Scouting who complete their training. It is awarded to Scouts around the world and all those who achieve their badge automatically become a member of the Gilwell Park Scout Group, the largest in the world. Today in the UK, the Wood Badge course is very flexible allowing volunteers to build on their own life skills and knowledge at times and learning styles suitable to them.

Length of Service Awards


The Chief Scout regularly thanks adult volunteers for their length of service. The young people in Scouting would not have the fun and adventure without them and it is important to recognise the most valuable contribution that all volunteers give, whatever their role.
