As we expand our Scouting programs to serve the entire family (both boys and girls) we are excited about the opportunities ahead of us for girls to finally experience the Scouting program just as their brothers did. Let us bring you up to speed on the highlights of Family Scouting.
In June 2018, girls in Kindergarten through Fifth grade began joining Cub Scout Packs and participating in all girl dens. Nationally, over 64,000 girls have joined Cub Scouts. In the Northern Lights Council, 350 girls have joined.
In February 2019, Scouts BSA Troops for girls ages 11-17 started. We are ramping up the organization of these new troops right now. For the latest information about Family Scouting, click here.
