Girl Scouts: Boy Scouts' house is on fire

Girls Now Have The Option of Joining Boy Scouts of America
The Boy Scouts of Americaannounced Wednesday they will allow girls to join the organization. "I think girls should have the opportunity to join either program", Ireland said. "As women gain their stature and start moving to the higher ranks of leadership, what you'll find is, a lot of the female leaders have been Girl Scouts in the past".
"There are no plans to change our name at this time", spokesman Effie Delimarkos said in an email.
Cub Scout dens will be single-gender-all boys or all girls.
There are about 10,000 Girl Scouts in the ten counties that make up that organization's northwest OH region.
"Only Girl Scouts brings the time-tested methods and research-backed programs that speak to leadership development specifically for girls".
The National Catholic Committee on Scouting, whose stated mission is to ensure the Boy Scouts "as a viable form of youth ministry with the Catholic youth of our nation", said it has accepted the BSA's decision but did not offer a formal opinion.
In 2012, I mailed my Eagle Scout badge back to Boy Scout headquarters. They develop differently, and they act differently in the presence of girls.
Girls could already participate in a number of Boy Scout activities, including Exploring, Adventuring, Sea Scout and the new STEM Scout program. Because families are busier than ever, the organization found, there was interest in sending kids to one scouting organization rather than shuttling their kids to multiple meetings.
"We'll make sure those environments are protected", he said. Cub Scout camping trips, he noted, were usually family affairs with less need for rigid policies.
Girl Scouts leaders expressed displeasure over the summer when the Boy Scouts sought advice from its 270 councils on whether to accept girls.
The change, starting from next year, hasn't made everyone happy though. Some had questions and concerns about how the shift will be implemented, but the reception was largely positive, Carman said. It can be bad, however, b/c my troop never had the benefit of being part of a larger group (pack) and I was on my own to "invent the wheel" or set up a badge plan.
"We are proud of the Boy Scouts of America for taking this step forward, and we believe the future is bright for Scouting in America".
In Central Ohio, that will mean Boy Scout dens - which are the smallest group and broken up by grade-level - will be separated by gender.
Both local boys and girls organizations said they've played nice with the other prior to Wednesday's announced change. "Either of them, the Girl Scout or the Boy Scout", said Hinze.
It used to be that Boy Scouts was a place where boys could be boys, and stay safe from all the girl cooties.
In a landmark decision, after more than 100 years in existence, the Boy Scouts of America will allow girls in its programming.
