The Woods Services Award

Woods Services logo

The Woods Services Award is given annually by the Woods Services and Residential Treatment Center, in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, to one BSA volunteer each year for exceptional service and leadership in the field of Special Needs Scouting. The Center is a leading advocacy and service organization that provides educational, residential, and vocational services to children and adults with special needs. The award was established in 1978 in memory of Luther Wellington Lord, a residential supervisor for more than 23 years at the Center. An active Scouter, the award was established in recognition of his service to youth through Scouting at the local and national levels.
