And some corporations will pay for WoodBadge, too!!! Also you do get
college credit as well.

Here it depends on the council. There are two Woodbadge courses: a weeklong
one, and a 3 weekend one (with patrol meetings between). Some counicls do
one or the other. Mine does the 3 weekender every 2-3 years. Others do
it more frequently, and there are also inter-council WBs, too.
