Sioux Falls scouting families excited girls will be allowed in Cub Scouts

-What are some of the arguments for and against girls joining the Boy Scouts?

WE ARE NOT READY to talk about the recent announcement that girls might soon have the chance to join the ranks of the Boy Scouts.

"This decision is true to the BSA's mission and core values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law".

-The Girl Scouts say that girls particularly need all-female organizations to really thrive and flourish. The Boy Scouts of America organization cited continued interest by families in signing up daughters as a primary reason for allowing girls to join Cub Scout packs in 2018, but left the decision of creating all-girl, all-boy or integrated packs to the local leaders in the first approach to welcoming girls to the program.

"The values of Scouting - trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, fearless and reverent, for example - are important for both young men and women", he said in a statement Wednesday. However, Farrer said initial discussions to make both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts programs co-ed died down about a year ago.

While Cub Scouts will feature gender specific dens, it's unclear how Boy Scout groups will integrate female troop members moving forward.

According to a press release issued Tuesday, the Boy Scouts of America will allow make all-girl Cub Scout dens in the 2018 programming year.

"They never reached out to let us know what was happening", she said. Stone said they've been pushing for full inclusion.

"I think the Boy Scouts of America is a great program and everybody should have access to its benefits". Likewise, Girl Scout Gold Award recipients rate their general success significantly higher than that of their peers. Proponents of the Boy Scouts' policy change have emphasized girls' newfound ability to earn Eagle Scout rank as one of the most exciting things about opening up aspects of Boy Scouting to girls. There was a wrenching realignment in 2006-2009 that slashed the number of local councils from 312 to 112. "We lost so many girls because of the weak programs and lack of support for outdoor activities".

Suellen Nelles, who heads the Farthest North Girl Scout Council in Fairbanks, Alaska, suggested that the series of problems caused the Girl Scout leadership to neglect their relationship with the Boy Scouts.


"We think this is an unfortunate decision by the Boy Scouts", Osterlund said.

"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire", Garcia wrote in the Huffington Post.

The national organization's response was somewhat stronger- issuing a statement saying the Boy Scouts' house is on fire.

Joni Kinsey, an art history professor at the University of Iowa, has been both a youth member and a troop leader in the Girl Scouts and fought against the possible sale of camps in her region.

We need organizations like the Scouting program to help us introduce young people to the character-building and service principles that are sorely missing today. Perhaps it could serve as a reminder to leaders of the Girl Scouts that a look at some of its programming is in order as well. Over the years, the programming has also been reimagined to fit scouts' needs.

Mixed feelings also were expressed by the president of the National Organization for Women, Toni Van Pelt.

There's already a place for girls in scouting, some said, and it's called Girl Scouts.

The Boy Scouts of America announced the change on Wednesday after a meeting at their headquarters in Texas where the measure was unanimously approved.
