No. The BPSA is totally independent of, and not affiliated with, the Boys Scouts of America or the Girl Scouts of the USA. 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. We are more closely related to the Baden-Powell Scouts’ Association of England and the Baden-Powell Service Association in British Columbia, Canada.
