Offering Iconic Boy Scouting to both Boys and Girls in 2018
Starting the fall of 2018, GIRLS ages 5 to 10 years old (K-5) can join a Pack. Up to the Pack Committee, the Pack can be all girls, all boys or co-ed with seperate DENS. See the pdf flyer below.
Starting February 2019, OLDER GIRLS ages 11 to 18 (6-12) can join a Boy Scout Troop. It can be separate troops of all boys and all girls under separate Chartering Organizations and Committees; or it can be a Linked Troop (still separate troops) with shared Committees and Chartering Organizations. Check out the flyer below.
This is a huge step for BSA in offering scouting to both girls and boys!
If you have an OLDER GIRL that wants to join a GIRL TROOP that will hit the ground running on Febrary 1st, please contact Debra Lankenau here. Blackland Prairie will have two or more Girl Troops!
If you have questions concerning Girls in Scouting, please contact Membership Chair Steve Kaualoku here.
