64th Brandywine Open House and Kickoff
Traditional Scouting for Everyone!
The 64th Brandywine Scouts of the Baden-Powell Service Association (BPSA) will hold their annual open house on September 10, 2015 in the West Grove Community Room. The informal event will feature scouting crafts and games for interested youth. Scoutmasters will be available to discuss the BPSA program with parents, and will accept new scout registrations or returning scout membership renewals. The 64th Brandywine serves south Chester County, including Octorara, Avon Grove, and Oxford Area school districts. In the BPSA, there are four program sections: Youth ages 5-7 years are Otters, ages 8-10 years are Timberwolves, Pathfinders are 11-17 years old, and adults can join as Rover Scouts. The 64th Brandywine has an active Otter program and is hoping to expand this year. Adults interested in becoming scout leaders are also encouraged to attend. During the year, scouts will participate in outdoor activities like hiking, fishing and camping, as well as service projects in the communities we serve. Regular monthly meetings are held in the West Grove Community Room. The BPSA was formed in the U.S. in 2006 as a co-ed, inclusive, secular and traditional Scouting association. The association continues the principles and practices of Scouting laid down by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907. The BPSA is totally independent of, and not affiliated with, either the Boy Scouts of America or the Girls Scouts of the USA; the BPSA is a member of the World Federation of Independent Scouts (WFIS).
