Scouting the way B.-P. Intended
We are a Northern New Brunswick Scouting group who offers a safe, fun and challenging traditional scouting inclusive opportunity for both boys and girls.
1st Miramichi is part of the NB Council of the Baden Powell Service Association (BPSA-NB) which is affiliated with other BPSA groups in Canada and the World Federation of Independent Scouts (WFIS). We were established to promote the principles, methods and practices of Scouting as originally laid down by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of scouting.
A Promise and Law, age appropriate, assist youth in learning by doing. We offer a progressive and stimulating program of varied activities based on the interests of the participants, largely in an outdoor setting in contact with nature.
Since the founding of the Scouting Movement it has spread around the world like a brush fire. Today there are only a handful of countries where Scouting is not being practised to some degree. The principles and methods of Scouting are so fundamentally sound and so adaptable that traditional scouting goes on developing and can never be dated or unsuited to any community.
The Aim of our Association is, as stated by B-P himself, to promote good citizenship and wholesome physical, mental development; and training in habits of observation, discipline, self-reliance, loyalty, and useful life skills.
In keeping with the Scout Law, our Association has a policy of goodwill and co-operation with any other Scouting organisation of like minded intent, whether in Canada or abroad. We work in co-operation with many of the other independent Scouting Associations.
We invite you to have a good look around our site and enjoy your visit. We hope you learn a bit about us and find out more about the many benefits Traditional Scouting offers the youth of today. Should you have any questions about Traditional Scouting in your community or general inquiry about the Traditional Scouting methods and programs, please drop us a line. We would be pleased to hear from you and assure that all inquiries will be answered in a timely fashion.
