So on the way home from school today my 9 yr old dd informs me that she "wants to join BOYscouts this year because they do really cool stuff like make wooden cars and shoot BB guns and bows and arrows. All Girlscouts do is make bracelets and sell cookies". We have been in girlscouts and she isnt far off.....So I am not going to try and put her in boyscouts because her daddy and pawpaw will take her to do these things, BUT it got me thinking,
CAN girls join boyscouts? Should they be able too? Is it time for girlscouts to revamp or is it just our local girlscouts that are like that?

There are other things that you DD can do even though she can't do boy scouts.
