Invitation from the Wood Badge Scoutmaster

My fellow Scouter,

I invite you to our Tecumseh Council Wood Badge course, the next step in your Scouting career.  As an individual it is important to continue to learn and teach, this is your move and opportunity to do so.

Wood Badge has been an integral part of my life.  I reflect and lean on the values often and strive to continually make myself a better person.  My Wood Badge experience has enabled me to strengthen my family, professional and Scouting relationships.

You will have FUN, meet new friends, share your skills and learn the skills of others.  At Wood Badge you will experience Scouting from a youth's  perspec­ tive.  As an adult leader or when guiding anyone, it is helpful to reflect on this perspective.

There will be an amazing staff for C6-439-17 to lead you on this mountain top experience that we call Wood Badge.  Come and experience the course for your­ self and encourage your fellow leaders to join you in this amazing opportunity.

It's Your Move,

Deb Mason
