Maybe the Girl Scouts aren't a good fit for little ladies who want to be more rough and tumble and aren't into traditionally girly stuff.
Sue Else the CEO for the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia said the organization will continue to operate as normal, ensuring that programming and development will stay as is. The Cub Scout dens will be single-gender, either all boys or all girls, and Cub Scout packs, which include a number of dens, will have the option to open to both.
"Utilizing the resources that we have already, we have the capacity to serve more kids and to bring programming, leadership development skills". "What happened yesterday is that we have another new competitor". The national Girl Scouts Association has about 1.5 million members nationally, down about 500,000 since 2014. When it comes to scouting, Wilcox said Girl Scouts is the best positioned girls leadership program nationally and in Western New York.
"'The values of scouting - trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, courageous and reverent, for example - are important for both young men and women, ' said Michael Surbaugh, chief scout executive".

Dan Gilbert served on the Boy Scout's Executive Council for 15 years and is now a member of the Advisory Council. The organization has also shown a willingness for inclusivity that has taken the Boy Scouts much longer to establish, so it could remain the preferred pick for parents of gender-fluid children. Proponents of the Boy Scouts' policy change have emphasized girls' newfound ability to earn Eagle Scout rank as one of the most exciting things about opening up aspects of Boy Scouting to girls. "It is time that we see everyone equal in rank and opportunity". The decision to allow girls into the Boy Scouts has also drawn fire from those who feel that the decision was based not on a true desire to welcome girls into the fold, but on a need to be politically correct after the organization was criticized over the last few years for its views on gay and transgender leaders.
"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire", Garcia wrote in the Huffington Post. A program for older girls will be created by 2019.

They voted to do this project from a pool of three ideas they came up with on their own; the other two were throwing a party for the community's shut-in elders who might be lonely and hosting an event to teach kids about the important contributions of women in society, from medicine to arts to sports. As a result, she has mixed feelings about the Boy Scouts' new overture to girls.
