From working with the BSA, I know it isn't always easy for a Scout to find a counselor to work with when they find a Merit Badge they have an interest in.  Due to the current size of the BPSA, I bet…Continue

The Northeast Region is excited to host the first BPSA-US National Rover Moot, to be held on the weekend of September 15-17, 2017, at Camp Johnson in secluded Bolton, Connecticut. What Is a Moot?A Moot is a gathering of Rovers, usually in a camp, similar to Jamborees held by our younger Scouting siblings.  The word "moot" is an Old English term for a meeting or assembly.  Since the 1920's, Rovers have gathered for moots of all shapes and sizes.  This event will be our first National Moot, and…See More

Observer and Tracking Proficiency Badges

Here's something I've put together while working on my Scoutcraft Star: a guidebook for those Pathfinders looking to work on their Observer and/or Tracker Proficiency Badge(s). It's still in draft form, but I hope some Scouts find it useful!Yours in Scouting,-Scott MooreObserver-Tracker%2011-08-16.pdfSee More

Profile Information

Are you a member of a current BPSA group? If so, which?
My name is Scott Moore. I'm from Maine, but currently live in Western New York. My dad and uncle were involved in scouting when they were younger (my uncle being an Eagle Scout with the BSA), but I opted to explore other interests in my youth. I have, however, always been interested in hiking, camping, nature, conservation, and everything outdoors. I have two sons now, both involved in Scouting, and became active due to their interest in it. After doing some research and learning about the historical Rover program, reading Scouting For Boys and Rovering To Success, discovering the BPSA, appreciating their non-discriminatory policies, and connecting with their commitment to community service, I became a life member.

As far as my current "Rover projects", I'm currently helping to compile the Rover's Handbook for the BPSA and, on the local level, I am the Scout Projects Coordinator for the Buffalo Central Terminal Restoration Corporation and have helped work with willing scouts (regardless of their group affiliation) on service projects involving restoring the terminal and beautifying the surrounding areas. I recently completed my Tenderfoot requirements, became invested as a Squire, and had the opportunity to visit some of our BPSC/Traditional Explorers Association of Canada brothers (and sisters) in Ontario when I was up there for business for a few weeks.

Yours in Scouting,

Scott Moore, Lone Rover Squire, 1st Lone Scout Group
Are you interested in starting a new BPSA group?
1st Lone Scouts
Any previous scouting background?
Former BSA Cub Scout Den Leader, Pack Trainer, Assistant Cubmaster
Current BSA Scoutmaster and Wood Badger
Current BPSA Rover Knight and RSL

Hi Scott, Ethan Jewett mentioned that you may have more information about online registration problems when trying to register with the lone scouts.  I'm trying to register myself and my son, and every time I click "add to cart" I get a website error: Undefined index: groups_id , even when I am sure that I have entered the lone scouts group selection.  Any information would be great.  Thanks! -Maegan Black

Hi Scott,

I have signed up as a Lone Rover; I'm just waiting for my membership to get processed.

My daughter and I are already getting started. Do you know if the handbooks can be purchased before my membership is approved?

Hi Scott,

Hi Scott,

I've posted videos to YouTube of the Tenderfoot requirements for your review. I've signed up as a Lone Rover for the time being. The videos I made (a series of 8) are not the best quality (you'll have to crank up the volume), but I think you'll be able to determine that I know the skills. Here are the URL's for the videos:









Thanks for your service!

Yours in Scouting,
