KALISPELL, Mont. — Thanks to a recent donation from the Kalispell Noon Rotary, girls ages 11 to 18 in the Kalispell area will now have the opportunity to join the city’s first all female Boy Scouts of America troop.
Scouts BSA Troop 1933-G is launching this month.
Scouts BSA started all-girls troop opportunities in 2019, with the same programming as the legacy Boy Scouts.
Since then all-girl troops have formed in Columbia Falls, Bigfork and now Kalispell. Now, there is an equal number of boy and girl troops in the Flathead Valley.
All-boy troops and all-girl troops focus on the same things, including character development, leadership opportunities and community service.
Through its merit badge program scouting offers STEM, science, digital technology, robotics, astronomy and naturalist opportunities.
The troop is seeking more girls interested in experiencing new things and learning lifelong skills.
Officials said it's a great opportunity for females to get involved in the largest youth organization in the country.
