Existing programs for girls

Did you know that Boy Scouts of America has had programs for girls for more than 45 years? Exploring, Sea Scouts and Venturing are programs available for girls to join right now, we also have a number of programs to help prepare girls for Scouting!

Summer Camp is open to all Scouts, all ages! Cub Scouts can attend day camp or family camp and older girls can attend Camp Yawgoog starting in the summer of 2019.

Exploring is a career exploration opportunity for girls and boys ages 14 to 20 in which young people with interest in specific careers are matched with local businesses and community organizations with expertise in those fields.

Sea Scouting has a particular emphasis on boating and water-based activities for girls and boys ages 14 to 20. Sea Scouts may sail or cruise on boats, learn navigation, learn how to work on engines and compete in regional events.

Venturing is an exciting adventure-based program for girls and boys age 14 to 20. The Venturing program aims to enable young adults to experience a program of fun, challenge, and adventure; to acquire skills; to become skilled trainers of others; and to prepare for life.
