HONOLULU (KHON2) – The Boy Scouts of America, Aloha Council is now accepting girls as part of its BSA program.
Scouts BSA, formerly known as “Boy Scouts,” is the signature program of the Boy Scouts of America focusing on boys and girls ages 11-17.
Scouts join Troops and build leadership skills, confidence, and physical fitness by earning merit badges, completing service projects, and working toward Scouting’s highest rank: Eagle Scout.
“It is truly a momentous occasion in the 109-year history of our organization,” said Aloha Council CEO Jeff Sulzbach. “We had heard for years from families who wanted their daughters to be able to join our program, which is one of the most popular youth development activities in the country. Our focus on leadership and preparing children for excellence in every area of their lives is attractive to both boys and girls.”
