The program for 11-17-year-old boys will become "Scouts BSA" starting next year. "We have two other programs, Venturing, which is already co-ed and has been co-ed for 20 years which is for boys and girls 14 to 20, and Exploring which is a career based program".
The umbrella organization will keep its name of Boy Scouts of America, or BSA. "As we enter a new era for our organization, it is important that all youth can see themselves in Scouting in every way possible", Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said. The organization says it has almost 2.3 million youth members between five and 21, a decrease from the 2.8 million members in 2012.
"Girl scouts we do a lot of games, that's not really learning", said Chloe Padgett, a cub scout, "but now that I'm in cub scouts, we do like camping more often, we have more like stuff to do, it's very fun for me". "We have been allowing at our day camps, over the last couple of years, little sisters and older sisters to come to our day camps with our Cub Scouts".
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. What does this mean for the girl scouts? In its peak years, BSA had more than 4 million participants.

The Boy Scout Program will open up to girls in February of 2019. But one regional leader, Fiona Cummings of Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, believes the BSA's decision to admit girls is among the factors that have shrunk her council's youth membership by more than 500 girls so far this year.
"How do you manage these strategic tensions?" she asked. And both the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts have seen membership shrink.
