BSA Chief answers your questions about welcoming girls into BSA programs

After the BSA Board of Directors’ historic decision to welcome girls into ScoutingExternal Link, many in the Scouting community had just one question: When can my daughter sign up?

Other Scouters had more specific questions about the reasons for the move, implementation and rollout plan.

On Oct. 30, I Bryan Wendell, senior editor of Boys’ Life, Scouting and Eagles’ Call magazines. asked ScoutersExternal Link to submit their questions for BSA Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh. He received more than 400 questions.

He read each one, organized them by topic and took a representative sample of 22 questions directly to our Chief. Mike spoke openly and candidly for nearly 30 minutes.
