Girls in Door and Kewaunee counties will have to cover some distance if they want to join Scouts BSA. The Boy Scouts of America began accepting girls into their program for 11 to 17-year-olds on February 1st with nine troops already established. However, the closest girl-only troop for interested scouts to join in the Door Peninsula is at Holy Family Church, located just off of Bay Settlement Road in Green Bay. Bay Lakes Council Scout Executive Jason Wolf says with a number of younger girls enrolled in Cub Scouts, he sees Scouts BSA growing in the future.
Bay Lakes Council serves over 27,000 youth across 35 different counties in two states. You can contact Bay Lakes Council for information on troops forming near you.
