  • No boys for Girl Scouts in area

Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts pledge to be friendly and helpful.

And not everyone welcomed the change.By noon, more than 50 commenters had taken to the Reading Eagle's Facebook page to sound off on the move."Boys Scouts are for boys, Girl Scouts are for girls, hello!?!" Hannan's letter went on to point out that the Girl Scouts were well practiced in training women leaders and mentioned research that pointed to the benefits of a single-gender environment. "What happened yesterday is that we have another new competitor". A letter from Kathy Hopinkah Hannan, the president of the Girl Scouts, claims that the Boy Scouts were running a "covert campaign" to gain female members and thus undercutting Girl Scout participation.

"What I'm hearing is girls don't get the same opportunities", said Riordan, who leads both her 12- and 9-year-old daughters' troops and was herself a Girl Scout.

"We really believe girls and families should have multiple opportunities", said Tish Bolger, CEO of Girl Scouts River Valleys, which serves 30,000 girls in Minnesota, and some of Wisconsin and Iowa. The values of Scouting - trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, fearless and reverent, for example - are important for both young men and women.

While he no longer works for the Boy Scouts, it is hard for him to escape the legacy of the organization he still holds dear. You've admitted that the smallest groups of Cub Scouts will continue to be single sex. Why?

Dolby grew up participating in Boy Scouts and earned the Eagle Scout rank, just like his older brother before him.

"Fortunately for us, this was caught very quickly and rapidly", Dugan said. "Given our history, as a courtesy, they could have let us know".

The growth of the Connecticut River Council with the inclusion of girls in the Cub Scouts and Eagle Scout program is unclear. "It has taught me how to be a leader to others and how to help others as well". In doing so, the girls realize that they are able to have a seat at the table, or even at the head of the table and are thereby more confident, self-assured, and ready to compete in the real world. There was a wrenching realignment in 2006-2009 that slashed the number of local councils from 312 to 112. And there have been deep rifts between leadership and grassroots members over the direction of programming and efforts by many councils to sell summer camps.

I'm going to have to side with the Girl Scouts on this one. "She'd make a tough Boy Scout", said Shirley, a former Girl Scout troop leader.

"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire", Garcia wrote in the Huffington Post. The Eagle Scout program for young women is now being finalized and will reportedly be announced in 2019.

She's been involved with both organizations and said the leadership skills both teach are valuable.

Smith did not see this as the start of female inclusion in the Boy Scouts, but rather another step, pointing to programs including Venturing, Exploring and Learning for Life that have been co-ed for decades. As a result, she has mixed feelings about the Boy Scouts' new overture to girls.

I think it's also clear that the BSA leadership is operating out of fear, and with no clear sense of mission. In catering to pressure groups, the Scouts are now losing the parents who would once sought out the unique and wholesome experience of Scouting. One man who had earned Eagle Scout honors told 10News he is thrilled by the decision to admit girls. In the early 2000's, the Boy Scouts of America had a membership of roughly 4 million, but membership had dropped to 2.3 million by 2016.

"This is a win-win situation for the youth of America", he said.

Among those displeased with the announcement was 99-year-old Boy Scout volunteer Russ Gremel. You should focus on the boys you've nurtured for more than 100 years.
