The BPSA is totally independent of, and not affiliated with Scouts Canada. We are members of the World Federation of Independent Scouts and as such are not in competition with other Canadian Scouting Associations, we are only their brothers and sisters.
The training scheme devised by B-P is based on using the natural desires of young people as a guide to the activities which will attract and hold them. The appeal of true scouting has always been to that element of the outdoorsman, pioneer and explorer which is part of our nature, and is at its most evident in youth.
Hence the significance of the opening sequence of the B-P's explanation of scouting in "Scouting for Boys":
"By the term 'scouting' is meant the work and attributes of backwoodsmen, explorers and frontiersmen".
Scouting is an outdoor movement and that is part of its character. To whatever degree conditions may, at time, force us indoors such as weather, darkness, or town-life we must regard this as second best necessity and never as a satisfactory substitute for the real thing.
