Interest is growing among girls in northeast Wisconsin when it comes to Boy Scouting. Thousands of girls nationally have joined the organization since Cub Scouts opened their doors in 2018 and the newly branded Scouts BSA followed suit earlier this year. Although there are currently no girl-only Scouts BSA troops in Door and Kewaunee Counties, Bay-Lakes Council Field Director Doug Ramsay says local packs in the area offer a bright future.
Voyageur District Associate Bob Pekol, who covers Door and Kewaunee Counties, says boys and girls should join the Cub Scouting and Scouts BSA programs because of the wide variety of activities and the ability to make a difference. Local packs and troops will have recruitment nights in the coming weeks. This is the second in a multi-part series of organizations kids can join as the school year begins.
