Lake Erie Council Wood Badge

Welcome to the LEC Wood Badge

Gilwell Field

Welcome to the Lake Erie Council Wood Badge site. Our goal is to provide information for potential participants; to illustrate past courses through pictures and past editions of each courses’ Gilwell Gazette, the course newspaper. We will also provide information and updates to the current course participants about their course. We will provide real time pictures during the course so family members at home can see what their loved ones are doing daily.

We will also provide information regarding other Wood Badge activities, updates from National and Regional Wood Badge offices, information about other courses offered in the Region.

Hopefully you will enjoy the site. This is a work in progress, so check back regularly. Please forward any comments you may have to

We created a document which provides participants a Wood Badge Course Overview. The document discusses the purpose, the objectives, and the skills taught during the course.
