THANKS TO YOU,
the excitement is building for girls joining local Scouting programs as 576 girls have become a part of a Cub Scout Pack or a Scouts BSA Troop over the past few months.
Girls began joining Cub Scouts in June 2018 and Scouts BSA in February of this year. Locally, 428 girls joined Cub Scouts, while 215 girls joined one of 26 (and counting) Scouts BSA Troops.
Already, their activities have included camping, hiking, outdoor winter adventures, Scout rank advancement (badges), coin collecting, chess and more. They are planning for a week-long summer experience at our camps and some are working diligently to be on track for the prestigious Eagle Scout Rank.
BSA will officially recognize our Inaugural Class of Female Eagle Scouts in the fall of 2020, providing young women who join Scouts BSA the needed time to complete all requirements. This Inaugural Class will be celebrated nationally and collectively commemorated.
We are excited to welcome girls into the full spectrum of Scouting programs and we look forward to the many future accomplishments they will achieve.
makes these programs and others like them possible for all families in Chicagoland and in Northwest Indiana. Thank you for your continued assistance. Together, we provide adult mentors with the knowledge and tools they need to deliver the best possible programs to youth in our communities to prepare them for life.
