BSA CHIEF ANSWERS QUESTIONS ABOUT WELCOMING GIRLS TO SCOUTING - CLICK VIDEO TO PLAY
After the BSA Board of Directors' historic decision to welcome girls into Scouting, many in the Scouting community had just one question: When can my daughter sign up?

By the time he recorded the video, he had received more than 400 questions. He took a representative sample of 22 questions directly to our Chief, who spoke openly and candidly for nearly 30 minutes. For the best experience, watch the complete video of the discussion.
