With reference to the Scout Skills Wood Badge syllabus attributed to Bill
Hillcourt, you can find most of the material in several current and recent
publications of the BSA without digging up the syllabus. Most of the
Scoutcraft found its way into "All Out for Scouting" and the original
"Brownsea Double-Two" run in many councils in 1976 and 1977 as part of
National's "back to basics" move inspired by Bill and many other Scouters.
The materials were incorporated in the revised JLTC/TLTC syllabus tested in
1978 and published in 1979. Most of the "Scoutcraft Files" from this
syllabus found their way into the current publication -- "Woods Wisdom" and
that is where most of the good old stuff resides (and pretty much complete).
For a very up-to-date and useful set of materials on Scout and campcraft, see
the BSA's recent set of OSI-Outdoor Skills Instruction Manuals. They are
available through your Scout Shop and/or National Supply and are just about
terrific. They serve as the basis of many new Outdoor Living Skills programs
in Councils across the land.
Good Scoutcraft to You.
Yours in Scouting
