In a historic shift, the Boy Scout of America will admit girls into the Cub Scout starting next year.
The LDS Church said that it won’t impact it’s existing programs for the young girls and women, according to the Deseret News. The church will still continue its century old partnership with BSA, but previous statements released by the church indicate that it may drop those programs in the future. Church spokesman Eric Hawkins released the following statement:
The Activity Days and Personal Progress programs of the church have long been in place to meet the needs of girls and young women in these age groups, and no change will be made in church programs,” said LDS Church spokesman Eric Hawkins. “We recognize that the desire of the BSA is to expand their programs to serve more young people in the United States. The church, too, continues to look at ways to serve the needs of our youth worldwide.”
