Bay Lakes Council hopes growth in girl recruitment continues

Senior District Executive Chris O’Brien hopes to see the growth of girls joining the Boy Scouts of America spread into Door and Kewaunee counties.  In the Voyageur District, which covers Brown, Door, and Kewaunee counties, approximately 30 girls have joined Cub Scout packs since they were first allowed to earlier this year.  Four to five all-girl units are also forming before the newly rebranded Scouts USA begins admitting members in February 2019. O’Brien says the numbers should grow as units become more established.



O’Brien believes a major draw for girls to the Scouts USA program will be the ability to earn the Eagle Scout rank.  The award is the highest a scout can earn and one that is highly regarded across the country despite other youth-driven organizations like 4-H and Girl Scouts having similar honors.
