Cub Scout Wood Badge is a course for Cub Scout Trainers, hence the name:
Cub Scout Trainer Wood Badge.
Can't really tell what it is like, but it is IMO, a much more meaningful
experience than Boy Scout Leader Wood Badge.
CSTWB is done on a Regional basis. Each region normally holds holds two
courses per year.
The Western Region's courses for this year are W-CS-40 & W-CS-41. If
my memory serves me right, 40 was held earlier this summer, in Washington
State (I may be mistaken). 41 is to be held at Camp Theodore Roosevelt
R-C, ouside of Payson, Arizona, on September 6-12, 1997. Last I heard,
there was some question as to whether the course would make due to lack
of participants. For more info contact Rhoda Clayton, at (602) 752-7000.
This course is normally by invitation only, and you must have approval
from your Council Executive, or his/her designee.
Now that I think of it, Rhoda is in charge of Action Center C at the
Jamboree, so she is probably already in VA, but I'm sure someone in
the Region office can give you more info.
If you are a Cub Trainer, this is an opportunity of a lifetime for you.
CSTWB, is by far, IMHO, the best training that BSA has to offer. I know
several of the staff for W-CS-41, and can assure you that you will be
gald you went, if you do.
