Wood Carvers Round Up

Whether you're a seasoned Woodcarving Merit Badge Counselor or an adult Scouter who is curious about how to teach Woodcarving, this hands on “train the trainer” conference is for you! Our faculty has decades of BSA Woodcarving experience in their respective regions and have all staffed the Woodcarving Merit Badge booth at several National Jamborees. We will focus on teaching by the MB book, sharing ideas on developing your own projects, reviewing safety, and learning how to set up your Scouts for success. Our goal is to gather Scout carvers from across the nation to share their projects and skills. Sharing these best practices will allow you to return home with skills to take your District, Council, and summer camp Woodcarving programs to the next level. Feel free to bring your own carving tools or you can borrow some of ours!
