Girl Scouts of Central Texas respond to BSA letting in girls

A Kansas fourth grader is thrilled to learn The Boy Scouts of America will expand their programs to girls.

Boy Scouts of America will now allow girls to be a part of its program.

Stone said they have reached out to their scouting family for several months to get their opinions about expanding the program to include girls.

"They're basically taking that same Cub Scout curriculum and throwing it at the girls and we know that that's not really going to work". "Wouldn't we want those women to have had the opportunity as girls to become Eagle Scouts?"

David Chace, scout master of Boy Scout Troop 25 at the All Saints Episcopal Church is also on board with the plan.

The national Girl Scouts organization stressed the need for a single-gender environment without specifically mentioning the Boy Scouts' decision.

The Girl Scouts, founded in 1912, and the BSA are among several major youth organizations in the US experiencing sharp drops in membership in recent years. Girl Scouts is the best leadership experience for girls in the world.

A statement on the Boy Scouts website says girls can join Cub Scouts starting next year.

"The hardest thing I think you are going to have to know is 4A that's knots", Michael Flicker said while reading from his Boy Scout handbook.

Elijah Dean, a local Boy Scout, said his sister had, like Roxie, always wanted to join his patrol's outdoor-oriented activities.

The Boy Scouts of America announced it will welcome girls into some programs.

"Today.today really marks a new day", Butler said. He expressed enthusiasm at the possibility that the changes could draw hundreds of thousands more girls into BSA ranks over the coming years. Larger Cub Scout packs will be able to decide whether or not they want to go co-ed.

Watson says numerous boys have sisters who have expressed interest in archery, BB guns and other scout activities.

Scott says any scout can be successful, no matter their gender.

"I think the boys certainly get a camaraderie from being with other boys".

"We've worked together for 100 years and we'll continue to work together to serve young people", Brown said.

"Boys and girls are the same".

The Boy Scouts will soon start accepting girls.

The move follows years of receiving requests from families and girls, the organisation with almost 2.3 million members between the ages of 7 and 21 announced. In 2016, the organization reported 2.3 million youth members, a decrease from 2.8 million in 2012.
