Wood Badge Promotions and Discounts

Patriots’ Path Council and Northern New Jersey Council are running a joint Wood Badge course in 2015.  Registrations are already underway at N5-358-15.org.  After December 31, 2014, the discounted early bird rate will expire.  If you would like to take advantage of the lowest price possible and other incentive possibilities, please see below for actions you can take.

  • Early Bird – Register prior to January 1, 2015 for a reduced rate.
  • Pay in Full – Pay in full for a discounted rate.
  • University of Scouting – Come out to the University of Scouting and if you register at the Wood Badge booth, you will receive either $25 off your last payment (limited coupons with a first-come, first-served basis) OR a $25 credit at the Wood Badge Trading Post (limited coupons with a first-come, first-served basis) during the course.
  • Lottery Prizes – All registrations during the early bird period will be entered into a lottery for prizes including:
    • First choice of critter
    • Snack for the patrol
    • Individual snack
  • Gift Certificates – Know someone you would like to take Wood Badge?  Help them by defraying the cost for to provide an extra incentive to participate.  Denominations can be as low as $25 up to the full-course fee.  If you would like to participate, please contact: Andrew Joiner via e-mail, andrew.joiner@scouting.org.
  • Financial Assistance – Scholarships are generally limited to $100 or approximately 1/3 of the course cost in the belief that the balance is the responsibility of the individual and the community or unit who will directly benefit from your training.  These scholarships are funded by a “silent auction” of Wood Badge & Scouting memorabilia and a portion of the proceeds from the annual Gilwell “Dining Out” Brunch in January hosted by the Northern New Jersey Council.  Please see the application if interested.
