Boy Scouts Now Allowing Girls to Join But Not Everyone Is Happy About It

For over 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America has served as an organization that works to bring young boys and men together in the name of friendship, charity, and exploration.

It’s been something that’s been very important to families, something they take pride in having generations who have been through the program and learning all the skills along the way. The traditions have been long held for so long and now all that is changing…

Now, the traditional organization is opening its doors to officially allow young girls to be admitted in the Cub and Boy Scouts.

Meanwhile, there already is a Girl Scouts of the USA.

That organization is accusing the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) of carrying out a “covert campaign to recruit girls into programs run by the Boy Scouts” in hopes of appealing to millennial parents and bolstering their declining membership, according to a letter they sent the Boy Scouts board.
