11th Prince Rupert BPSA Scouting Group "The BP Service Association is one of several Scouting organizations throughout Canada which operates as a 'back-to-the-basics program' which help harvest individual character, personal outdoor skill-sets, and well-rounded community citizenship in any Canadian youth or adult. Much of the traditional programs which we use come from the original teachings from Baden-Powell's original ideas, ethics, principals, and morals, which still remain relevant today."
Currently, the 11th Prince Rupert, uses First United to host their Otter (ages 5-7) and Timber Wolves (8-11) meetings. If you are interested in enrolling your children, or would like more information about the 11th Prince Rupert BPSA, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
