The Baden-Powell Service Association offers a community-oriented traditional scouting program for youth and adults of all genders in the United States. There is no religious requirement and our groups are independent from sponsoring organizations. We offer the experience of scouting to anyone who wishes to join us.
We are not affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America or the Girl Scouts, USA or their governing scout associations. We are members of the World Federation of Independent Scouts (WFIS) and as such are not in competition with other American scouting associations; we are only their brothers and sisters in scouting.
Starting a new group is an exciting endeavor that will connect you to your community and the worldwide scouting movement.
The BPSA Lone Scouts program is for individual Otters, Timberwolves, Pathfinders and Rovers who might live in rural areas or may not have the interest locally in starting a new group.
