Opinion on girls joining scouting? I'm an Eagle myself but never went for a ton of merit badges, my calling in Scouts in summer camp staff (last summer I was Ecology director for the only open scout camp in my state). One of the best coworkers I've ever had at a scout camp was a girl, and personally I have no issue with letting girls in as long as they're treated the same as everyone else (i.e. not babied). Any thoughts?

Agreed, my biggest issue with girls joining the BSA is the name, we used to have "Boy Scout", but now it's something dumb like "male/female Scouts BSA member" if you want to be accurate lol
