Scouts BSA Up 1.2% Youth Members, up 7.1% Units in Open Discussion - Program Posted Wednesday at 04:56 PM · Edited Wednesday at 04:57 PM by Eagle1993 Added comment Just saw a FB post by a fairly well connected volunteer on number of girls in BSA. Will be interesting to see total numbers including boys. Troops 31,041 girls in Scouts BSA 3,346 Girl Troops Average Troop is 9 girls Cub Scouts 15,375 Packs with at least 1 girl 8,513 Packs with 5 or more girls 129,830 girls in Cub scouts (2018 ended with 77,784) so a 67% increase Total number of girls hit 160,871. I agree I expect this number to increase year over year. I’m not convinced that it will outpace the loss of boys, even excluding LDS. In my area, boy decrease is outpacing the increase in girls (so far) and we have limited LDS units. Edit: These are end of Dec numbers for each year.
