Boy Scouts go on new adventure, will admit girls to programs

Boy Scouts go on new adventure, will admit girls to programs”

Neither representative would give a prediction on how the change will impact either organization's membership but Steindl says he looks forward to bringing in the new Cubs, "its not new it's just a younger age group". Numerous den leaders in Cub Scouts are women, and girls participate in the Explorer, Venturing and STEM Boy Scout programs, Butler said.

Anderson says despite the change to Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops will remain a single gender program. "The things this program embodies are just as important to girls as they are to boys".

The Boy Scouts' board unanimously approved the decision to allow girls into the Cub Scouts program starting next year.

The Boy Scouts of America announced it will welcome girls into some programs. They also questioned the reasoning behind the Boy Scouts of America's decision.

"Surely it will involve a few bumps as the program changes are developed and the kinks get worked out, but we know that Scouting works".

"People were like you can't join, you're a girl", said Leia. She said she liked "going river rafting, I could never do that with the Girl Scouts, or going down a zip line that I had to climb 50 ft. up to get to or rock repelling". "We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children".

"What a lot of people don't realize is the Girl Scouts has a 'Gold Award.' It is very much suitable in the same attainment of that high skill", Sowell said.

Scouts like Damian just hope tradition isn't lost.

"I was overjoyed because I think the scouting programs delivered through the Cub Scouts are such an excellent family-oriented experience".

There already is some gender overlap in each organization.

"Today's announcement has no effect on girl scouts".

Sherer says he went around to leaders this summer and asked what they thought of the idea.

Both Bozzi and Chace said they're waiting for instructions from the regional Boy Scout Council on how and when the change will be implemented. Many scouts have moved on to become Eagle Scouts and in turn become captains of industry, astronauts and even president. Whether it's Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, it's based on trust.

"It shaped me and I can't say enough about the program and what it does for young men and now young women", Meyer says.

Audrey Adamson was a girl scout and carried the legacy long after leaving her troop.
