The Baden-Powell Service Association (BPSA) was formed in the U.S. in 2006 as an independent and traditional-style scouting association. Our association continues to perpetuate the principles and practices of scouting devised by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907 that have been developed and refined in scout associations around the world. Our aim is to promote good citizenship and holistic training in habits of observation, discipline, self-reliance, and loyalty. We teach real outdoor skills and engage in adventures, campouts, and community-building. Service is one of our core tenets, as we create a culture where children and adults ask, “How can we help?”
