The new Family Scouting program was in full swing on Saturday, October 20 at Seton Scout Reservation.

For the first time, girls were able to participate in the annual Cub Scout Fall Festival as registered Cub Scouts.

Wearing their uniforms, the girls participated in BB’s, archery, climbing, bouldering, and gaga ball alongside their brothers and male counterparts.

The inclusion of girls in the iconic scouting program kicked off in 2018 as part of the national Boy Scouts of America’s 2018 “Scout Me In” campaign.
