100 years of Wood Badge Training celebrated worldwide

100 years of Wood Badge Training celebrated worldwide

December 6, 2019

The pictures are of very low quality but it still serves as a historical point in Wood Badge training in Belize.

As we celebrate 100 years of Wood Badge Training in the world, I want to share some pictures of our 1st Wood Badge Course held in Belize at Mountain Pine Ridge from June 29 to July 5, 1987.


Michael Hudson who was Regional Director then and who was a close friend of Belize directed the course and was assisted by 2 other Scouters from Boy Scouts of America, Walter ‘Dan’ Dansby was one of them the other I don’t remember his name at this point.

I believe that the only active person today who did the Wood Badge Course back then is Nephtali Palma (Front row seating L-R second person) some have passed away and others have moved on with their lives.

If anyone can help with the names of the participants in the group picture that says (not sure) I can update this post later on.
