'Boy' Will Be Dropped From Boy Scouts, As Girls Are Joining

The umbrella organization will retain its name, Boy Scouts of America or BSA. Starting June 1st, Cub Scout Troops across the country will have parallel all-girl dens. Starting this summer, all kids are invited to say, "Scout Me In", as they join the fun, adventure and character-building opportunities found in Cub Scouts.

Girl Scout leaders say that they will stay independent of their male counterparts while continuing to focus on creating the next generation of female leaders.

The organization also tweeted: "Fact: Girl Scouts works".

The organization's move to a gender-neutral name came on the heels of its decision to accept girls into its ranks next year. In October, it announced it would provide programs for girls.

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America assert in a blog post that it "is unmatched in delivering proven outcomes that set girls up to close the gender gap and position our nation to compete in the global economy". No chartered partner will be forced to adopt a program for girls.

The local district has had a standing tacit policy of accepting girls anyway but continues to refer to itself as Jackson District Boy Scouts.

"It is important that all youth can see themselves in scouting in every way possible", he said. "We are, and will remain, the first choice for girls and parents". "'We see boys and girls as equal but not the same, ' Maryann Barry said". Most of the actual Cub packs and Scout troops, however, will be single gender.

Additional information on Family Scouting is available at the BSA's official Family Scouting website. The change will take effect in February. The campaign presents an energizing Scouting experience that speaks to kids by putting them in the middle of the action.
