LANDER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

The Boy Scout Greater Wyoming Council wants to start a Scouts BSA girl troop in the Lander area. They would need four adult leaders over the age of 21, and at least five girls age 11 to 17 to participate in the troop. Background checks are required for all leaders wanting to volunteer. The district executive says the boy and girl troops are kept separate, although there may be some crossover engagement in group activities. She noted with the BSA girl troop, as opposed to Girl Scouts, there may be more options for merits and outdoor activities.

District Executive for the Boy Scouts Greater Wyoming Council, Waverly Polak, stated “Now there’s certain merit badges you have to earn to get the higher rank like citizenship of the world, citizenship of the nation. I like that they have required ones and it teaches them. We have hiking, swimming, biking, camping, you have the required ones.”

To volunteer, or to learn more about the program, contact Waverly at (307) 217-8718 or at waverly.polak@scouting.org
