I am going to try and ask this question without trying to sound too ignorant. Mind you, I know absolutely nothing about the boy scouts or the girl scouts, so I am not asking this to be rude or any other way someone might take this.
We have boy scouts and we have girl scouts. If we have girl scouts, then why is there a need for girls to join the boy scouts? I'm not trying to sound like I am against it, I don't see an issue with it. I ask this because I am wondering, are the girl scouts different than the boy scouts? Do the girl scouts operate completely different than boy scouts, or?
I genuinely don't know anything about either of them so that's why I am asking.
Girl Scouts tend to be a bit softer I’m pretty sure. Not as much outdoor activists rather than training skills that the Boy Scouts train more of.
Boy Scouts do a lot more physical activity compared to academic I’m pretty sure
Actually, while there certainly is a lot of physical activity, many of the merit badges are about day to day life skills. Money management, citizenship, music etc. I don't know much about the Girl Scouts, tbh, but they have a few things like that in common.
It's all good, a lot of people ask that same question.
The BSA and the Girl Scouts are two separate organizations, run completely independent from each other. They are similar only in name, and in some ways the youth programs are structured.
