Girls in Cub Scouts

Earlier this year the BSA announced that for the first time ever, girls would be allowed to join the Cub Scouts. What is your reaction to this announcement? Pack 8 will be hosting an open house in March for parents to discuss the BSA’s announcement and voice their opinions regarding how Pack 8 should move forward. If you have questions, please review the information and watch the videos at these links:

Information regarding the integration of girls into Boy Scouts can be found here:

In summary:

For Cub Scouts, the options are:

  1. Packs could have girl dens and boy dens, but not coed dens.
  2. Packs could remain all boy and not serve girls.
  3. A new all-girl pack could be started.

At the Boy Scout level, troops will not be integrated. A Chartered Organization may choose to sponsor an all-girl Troop that would share the same Committee, but have separate Scoutmaster, Asst. Scoutmaster, etc.
