Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA Feb 1st

Beginning February 1st, the name of the program for youth 11 through 17 years of age is changing from “Boy Scouts” to “Scouts BSA.” Before, during, and after that program name change, the overall organization name will continue to be Boy Scouts of America.

Both male and female participants in the Scouts BSA program will be referred to as “Scouts,” just as boys now in the Boy Scout program are often referred to as “Scouts.” Troop structure will be single gender, meaning a Scouts BSA troop will be made up of all boys or it will be made up of all girls. There will be no co-ed or mixed troops.
