New Scout Handbooks at the Scout Shop

New Scout Handbooks at the Scout Shop

Girl-friendly Scout handbooks now available

Girls who are members of a Scouts BSA all-girl troop will want to buy this version of the Scout handbook, with photos of girls in action along with appropriate girl-friendly pronouns.

Just to be fair, BSA National cloned a boy-friendly version -- completely identical to the girl version, but with different photos and different pronouns. Note that boys can buy either the new handbook or the old existing 13th edition.

With one exception, rank requirements have not changed since last year, and all rank requirements apply equally to boys and girls. The exception is a one-time relaxation of the requirement to complete Eagle Scout prior to the 18th birthday, which applies to girls (and boys) who first join a troop in 2019.
