We are all brothers and sisters in scouting and take great pride in sharing similar core values of service, community, and self-empowerment. BPSA welcomes all genders to scout together in equal dignity, and there is no religious requirement. Further, our program harkens back to the original scouting programs designed by Robert and Olave Baden-Powell. In practice, this means our badgework is simplified, our meetings are held outdoors, and we run independently of any sponsoring organizations.
