Boy Scouts of America to start accepting girls

"I think it's really cool, because then my little sister will be able to come, and then maybe some friends that are, like, girls can hang out with me", Scout Jo Jo Crabtree said. "It doesn't say boys, it says young people". "If she does the same stuff, why shouldn't she get a merit badge?"

The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that its board of directors had unanimously approved a decision to begin admitting girls into its Cub Scout program and to develop a program that will allow girls to eventually attain the rank of Eagle Scout for the first time ever.

While girls will soon be able to be a cub scout, the troops will be single gender but Nelson says boy scouts aren't the best place for them. Existing packs may choose to form a new girl pack, one that consists of girls and boys, or have only boys.

Thousands of exceptional Girl Scouts earn their Gold Award each year, Girl Scout's highest award, becoming Gold Award Girl Scouts by transforming an idea and vision for change into an actionable plan with measurable, sustainable, and far-reaching impact at the local, national, and global levels.

Tammy Wharton with the Columbus, Ohio Girl Scouts said so many young girls will miss out on life lessons that continue to evolve with a focus on science. "What are they gonna change it to just Scouts now?" he said. We are the preeminent girl-serving organization and only we bring the history, expertise and data-backed programming designed specifically to meet the unique needs and interests of girls.

Others 24-Hour News 8 spoke with grew up watching family members in Boy Scouts.

"She gets excited about going into the woods and nature and camping and swimming and hiking and we do all those things so I will be anxious for her to get involved in scouting just like I did", Meyer says.

Mann's son Bret, 11, said he has fun when girls attend the events.

But the Girl Scouts think the news just adds confusion to the marketplace.

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.

Becky Burton, chief executive officer of the Fort Worth-based Girl Scouts of Texas-Oklahoma Plains Council, said in a statement that the Girl Scouts has been and will be the best place for girls.

Girl Scouts president Kathy Hopkinah Hannan wrote earlier in 2017 to the Boy Scouts to oppose their expansion and accuse them of attempting to artificially shore up membership numbers.

The move comes on the tails of other changes in scouting.

Next year Bernadette wants to join her brother's organization.

Tickle also has deep roots in scouting. "That's what we want to do", Perez said. During his career, Tickle has partnered with the Scouts on a number of projects. The reserve, which opened in 2013, is the home of the National Scout Jamboree.

Mark Goldblatt of Concord said this might have played a role in the decision announced Wednesday.
