Door and Kewaunee County’s seven Boy Scout and six Cub Scout chartering organizations will be the ones to decide if girls will join their ranks. Girls can join Cub Scouts beginning June 1 and Scouts BSA, formerly known as Boy Scouts, February 19 with all the opportunities of their male counterparts but in gender-separated dens and troops. Bay-Lakes Council Scout Executive Jason Wolf says the program changes have been well-received from families currently enrolled and those looking to join.
Wolf says families interested in joining can contact the Bay-Lakes Council or individual cub and scout masters to learn which units will have dens or troops available for girls.
