Why the Change
How Will It Work
BSA Scout Troop 19 is charted by the Rocklin Lion's Club and open to all eligible girls. It will be a single-gender troop with a shared committee and linked to Rocklin Troop 29.
What is Changing
What is Changing? Starting in 2019, families can choose to sign up their son or daughters for Scouting. Using the same curriculum as the Boy Scouts program, Scouts BSA will enable all eligible youth ages 11 to 17, to earn the Eagle Scout Rank. Scouts BSA will be single gender - all girls troops or all boy troops. This unique approach allows the organization to maintain the integrity of the single-gender model while also meeting the needs of today's families.
It's important to underscore that BSA has provided programming to young women and young men for many years through Sea Scouts, STEM Scouts, Exploring and Venturing.
- STEM Scouts: 45% of participants are girls/ young women.
- Exploring: 39% of participants are girls/ young women.
- Venturing: 36% of participants are girls/ young women.
- Sea Scouts: 40% of participants are girls/ young women.
Who is eligible?
Mirroring the ages served by the existing Boy Scouts program, the program for girls will serve girls who have
- completed the fifth grade and are at least 10 years old,
- or have earned the Arrow of Light and are at least 10 years old,
- or are age 11 but have not reached age 18.
