Scouts BSA Announces Formation of Girl Troop in Bedford

As you may have heard, the Boy Scouts of America has changed the name of their main scouting program to Scouts BSA, and for the first time in over 100 years is now allowing the formation of girl troops. 

The Bedford Rotary Club, which is the charter organization sponsoring Troop 5, is forming a new troop for girls in Bedford.  Girls at least 11 years of age but not yet 18 and who like adventure and have a pioneering spirit are encouraged to join.  Those joining will be among the first girls to have the opportunity to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout!  

Scouts BSA is not coed and the girls will form a new troop separate from boys.  However, the meeting times and places, program and activities, and many of the adult leaders will be the same as Troop 5. Scouts BSA is a year-round program for youth that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves. 

Troop 5 is a well-established and highly successful troop.  It has been in existence since 1992, currently has 77 registered Scouts, 27 registered adult leaders, and has seen 55 Scouts earn the rank of Eagle.
