The Boy Scouts of America’s main program won’t be called “boy scouts” anymore, the organization announced as it prepares to accept girls and launch a campaign focused on “inclusiveness.”
The Boy Scouts of America will continue calling its younger members “Cub Scouts” – that program will also accept girls – and will call its hallmark “Boy Scouts” program for males aged 10-17 a more gender-neutral “Scouts BSA.”
Younger members will still be called “Cub Scouts” and older members will simply be “Scouts.” Scouts BSA, for now, will allegedly not have any mixed-gender, or coed, troops. The organization’s primary name will continue to be “Boy Scouts of America.”
“Just as before, these Scouts will earn merit badges, go camping and work toward the Eagle Scout Award,” a blog for adult Boy Scout leaders announced.
