Georgia Candidate: Boy Scouts Giving in to 'Politically Correct Bedwetters'

"Starting in February 2019, the name of the older youth program will be 'Scouts BSA, ' and the name of our iconic organization will continue to be Boy Scouts of America".

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) ran a $45 million deficit in FY 2016, a $18 million deficit in $2015, and a almost $34 million deficit in 2013, when the BSA was in the midst of its fight over the exclusion of gay scouts.

The Boy Scouts are getting rid of the word "boy" in their name. "That is why it is important that the name for our Scouting program for older youth remain consistent with the single name approach used for the Cub Scouts", said Michael Surbaugh, Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America.

"Boy Scouts of America claims nearly 2.3 million members, down from 2.6 million five years ago".

For the first time this summer, Cub Scouts, which is designated for younger, elementary school-age children, will also welcome girls.

Boy Scouts of America made a major announcement this week that the name of one of their staple programs is changing. In its peak years, BSA had more than 4 million participants.

The Boy Scouts had suffered from declining numbers for years, but the news that the organization would go coed hit with a certain amount of sadness.

Among the initiatives is creation of numerous new badges that girls can earn, focusing on outdoor activities and on science, engineering, technology and math. But one regional leader, Fiona Cummings of Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, believes the BSA's decision to admit girls is among the factors that have shrunk her council's youth membership by more than 500 girls so far this year.

Futrell said she attended a STEM event at Camp Whispering Cedars a few years ago, where she took part in hands-on experiments.

"How do you manage these strategic tensions?" she asked.

"For many decades, the Boy Scouts helped turn boys into men", Williams said in a statement. And both the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts have seen membership shrink.
