It's official. After making requests for a year, girls can now become Boy Scouts.
Starting next year, girls will be able to join Cub Scouts.
"Girls would be able to join as cub scouts, in cub scout packs that would be single gender cub scout dens, but would be able to be a Cub scout as a girl", Mike Butler, scout executive explained. "Girl Scouts is for girls only and is a single-gender environment".
Most people say they are against the idea, but local Nesheim says the discussions in Virginia about girls in Cub Scouts have been positive. Numerous den leaders in Cub Scouts are women, and girls participate in the Explorer, Venturing and STEM Boy Scout programs, Butler said.
CEO for the Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana Aimee Stachura says, "Every organization has competition and that's just part of it".
These girls have no plans to leave their Girl Scout troop.
The Cub Scouts is a program for pre-adolescents that often leads to entrance into the Boy Scouts, but the decision goes further than letting young girls participate in Cub Scouts.
"Fundamentally, scouting has always been about creating the next generation of leaders".
"Last year I sold 900 boxes of Girl Scout cookies and got an iPod touch", said Flicker at her dinner table showing off the badges that she has earned as a Girl Scout.
"Now as a parent with a daughter who has the same opportunity as I do, you know it opens a door for her", Wolfe said.
