We are the first and only Baden-Powell Service Association scout group in NJ. The BPSA-US offers a traditional scouting experience based on outdoor activities for all ages from 3+. The BPSA-US is not affiliated with other scouting groups., though we love to scout with everyone.
We ARE meeting in person with layers of precautions such as: health screening before meetings, mask wearing at all times when not eating/drinking, social distancing, limiting sharing of materials. We use CDC and NJ Department of Health to make decisions about how, when and where to meet.
We offer a Chipmunk Scout Circle for children 2-4, Otter Section for children 5-7, a Timberwolf section for children 8-10 and a Pathfinder section for kids 11-17. Chipmunks are our youngest scouts, meeting a few times of a year for a nature-based play date and/or tagging along when their older siblings are at a meeting.
We get together for a few times over the summer for outdoor fun & some camping, then our program runs from September through June. The 28th meets twice a month, once for a meeting, again for an outing, hike or camp out. Scouting is a game best played outdoors so we meet outdoors as much as possible.

Hope we see you on the trail or around the campfire soon!
