    They still don't accept atheists.

    I'd say their odds of having fun would increase if they camped independently, rather than with an organized youth group. I know that was the case back when I was a teenager.

    Let me get this straight... instead of boy and boy it will possibly be boy and girl and somehow - a girl and a boy getting together at camp - is going to be the "fall" of the organization?

    Have you been alive the last 80 years?

    So what?

    Have you ever been to summer camp in the last 80 years?

    9/10ths of the reason to go is BECAUSE you might hook up. BSA just gave boys the same chance.

    I can imagine how happy I would have been, as a 15 or 16 year old boy, at the idea of sharing my tent with a girl or two.

    Or three.

    Why not replace it with Trump Youth






    Less than a year after the Boy Scouts of America decided to invite girls to join, the organization announced that it will refer to its older youth program as "Scouts BSA" starting in February 2019.


    The name change comes amid a new campaign slogan, "Scout Me In," that was made to emphasize the group's expansion from just boys to boys and girls.
    ...
    The name change only applies to the program currently called Boy Scouts, which is available for teens ages 11-17. The Cub Scouts program, for children ages 5-10, will not undergo a name change. The name of the organization will remain Boy Scouts of America.
    This really has zero to do with President Trump.
    Thanks from HCProf

    I'm still not convinced they're a myth.

    There is going to be some segregation. Probably girls and boys would be in the same troops but in different patrols. It will be a little more to watch for, but it won't be that big a deal. The scout curriculum is still very Christian oriented. The only thing that's changed is that now the girls have a scouting option that isn't oriented towards the women of the 1950s... sewing, cooking, etc.
