I was pleased to see that the Woodbadge skills would be on the WWW. They
are no secret. My son learned them in Sogus training before I did and
shared them with me.
What should be saved are some of the training methods, because some of
the experiences are best experienced rather than analyzed. Woodbadge was
an important learning for me. I lead and develop organizations for a
living. The Woodbadge experience made my personal, scouting, and
professional life richer.
I'd encourage anyone to sign up.
My only caution is that in reading some list of the skills, one might
think "been there, done that." Wait until you are part of a patrol
learning how to get everyone to succeed and leaning that everyone has
resources to offer to a project larger than you think you can get done.
Learn that in the rain, learn that at 6 AM and at 11PM and in your "free
time" Learn that in class and in the field and at your campsite then
you've really learned it the Woodbadge way.
