BSA Cub Scout Program Updates
The Cub Scout program, which serves youth ages 5 through 10 and had been available to boys since 1930, started serving girls in January 2018 through an Early Adopter program. Cub Scout registration will become available to boys and girls and in all councils starting in the Summer of 2018.
At the Cub Scout level, den and pack structures are as follows:
There will be three types of Cub Scout packs: all-boy packs, all-girl packs and packs that include a mix of girl dens and boy dens. Cub Scout dens will be single-gender: all boys or all girls.
This hybrid model builds on the benefit of a single-gender program while also providing character and leadership opportunities for both boys and girls.
