Hi Gino! The weekend course is one option for taking Wood Badge in the
US. The other option is the 8 day (Saturday through Saturday) or
weeklong course. I took the latter option August 14-21 of this year.
Opinion seems to be split as to which option is better, harder, etc.
Either way, I highly recommend Wood Badge training to all Scouters.
For those interested, the is a book available in BSA Scout Shops called,
History of Wood Badge Training in the United States. Good book! I wish
I had read it before going to Wood Badge instead of after. <g>
