Berks-based council looks forward to letting girls join Boy Scouts

"I'm surprised it's coming at this point of time but I think that it's gonna be alright, I think that Caegen will learn some things from the girls and the girls are definitely gonna learn things from them", said Cathy Bewley, former cub scout leader.

The Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa CEO Beth Shelton said 105 years ago, the organization started out serving girls, which continues to be its mission today. Existing packs may choose to establish a new girl pack, establish a pack that consists of girl dens and boy dens or remain an all-boy pack.

Girls between seven and ten years old will be allowed to join the Cub Scouts program starting January 2018. Although her membership in the Girl Scouts helped her build community and emergency preparedness, she wanted adventures that simply weren't available to the girls' program.

The Girl Scouts of South Carolina Mountains to Midlands said they could not comment on the decisions made by other organizations but said they are a leadership based program for girls.

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. "It was always fun to be able to have that", said Allyson Howard, 17, who plans to join the Boy Scouts.

"I would personally stick to Girl Scouts because we could like do things that Boy Scouts could do", said Madison Mayer of Scranton.

"I mean girls could definitely do that just as well as a guy could". "We heard a lot of excitement from families in anticipation of this change". "Girls want STEM education, they want to pursue science and technology, engineering and math", Sowell said.

Some say the more choices for girls, the better. In Australia both boys and girls have been able to join scouts since as far back as 1971.

"Anything that brings the family together", said Jackson's father, Ryan Conway.

"What national has said is it will be a boy den program and a girl den program", explained Darin Steindl. We are the organization creating-through our skill-building Girl Scout Leadership Experience-the female leadership pipeline.

When asked if the Girl Scouts will consider adding boys to their ranks, the answer right now is a hard "no".

Cub Scout packs will have the option to have either one or both genders.

"I think it's what's best for her".
