BSA Expands Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts Programs to Welcome Girls

Today, the Boy Scouts of America Board of Directors unanimously approved to welcome girls into its iconic Cub Scout program and to deliver a Scouting program for older girls that will enable them to advance and earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout.

Starting in the 2018 program year in August, families can choose to sign up their sons and daughters for Cub Scouts. 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. Cub Scout dens will be single-gender — all boys or all girls.

Using the same curriculum as the Boy Scouts program, the organization will also deliver a program for older girls, which will be announced in 2018 and projected to be available in 2019, that will enable them to earn the Eagle Scout rank. This unique approach allows the organization to maintain the integrity of the single gender model while also meeting the needs of today’s families.

The historic decision comes after years of receiving requests from families and girls. The BSA evaluated the results of numerous research efforts, gaining input from current members and leaders – as well as parents and girls who have never been involved in Scouting – to understand how to offer families an important additional choice in meeting the character development needs of all their children.

The BSA has provided programing to young women and young men for many years through Sea Scouts, STEM Scouts, Exploring and Venturing:

  • STEM Scouts: 40% of participants are girls/young women, 60% are boys/young men
  • Exploring: 39% of participants are girls/young women, 61% are boys/young men
  • Venturing; 23% of participants are girls/young women, 77% are boys/young men
  • Sea Scouts: 40% of participants are girls/young women, 60% are boys/young men

National BSA shared a press release and link to a Frequently Asked Questions file regarding the expansion of Scouting programs to include girls on Scouting Newsroom here: http://www.scoutingnewsroom.org/family-scouting)
