About the Baden-Powell Scouts
Baden-Powell Lyme-Bay Scouts is an independent Scout Association and
proud members of the World Federation of Independent Scouts. The
Baden-Powell Scouts' Association (BPSA)
holds the ideals of Scouting that were created by our founder. The
history of our Association dates back to the foundations of Scouting in
the UK in 1908.
Our Association use the same badge system, ranks and
uniform that were worn by Scouts nearly 100 years ago. We follow a
charter set down in our Policy Association Rules. We have no Paid
Executive Staff or Leaders.
believe that the original Scouting programme practiced in the BPSA is
more exciting, fun, challenging and personally demanding. The
traditional programme also develops a sense of duty, personal discipline
and honour. Some don't see these matters as important but we do! Our
Scouts enjoy the traditional Scouting skills; lighting fire by friction,
navigating by means other than a compass, backwoods cooking, camping
skills & more.
