Starting for 2018, families can choose Cub Scouts for their sons and daughters, who can take advantage of the lifechanging experiences provided through Scouting. A program for older girls will be delivered in the coming year to offer a Scouting program to older girls, allowing for participating girls to earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout.
