Scouts BSA welcomes both boys and girls into organization


Formerly known as the Boy Scouts, Scouts BSA welcomes boys and girls ages 5 thru 21 to join Scouting.

They have something for everyone.

Whether you are a first grader learning about healthy food choices and physical activity, a third grader who wants to learn how to fish or you are interested in learning first aid and outdoor survival skills or maybe a game design and digital technology merit badge are more your style.

Committee Chair of Cub Scout Pack 147 Sarah Hosford-Campbell along with Leeland and Wesley Hosford discussed the recent changes to make the organization more inclusive as well as the opportunities offered.

Along with the name change, Scouts BSA now welcomes girls into its ranks. While the Scouts curriculum has not changed, girls can now become members.

Girls are welcomed into the packs but still form individual groups within larger groups. This means girls have their own leaders alongside the boys but also work the boys on bigger projects.

Scouts learn how to build things, help people, take care of themselves, conserve nature, and many many more important life skills.
