Girl Scouts Barred from a Camporee by the Girl Scouts

Recommended Posts

This is all very sad & so very unscout like, from a cub scout leader prospective. 

I have a friend that runs both BSA units and a GSUSA unit.  When her GS unit arrived at a camp owned by GS, she was told that the girls could enter if they had enough adult leaders but that the head of the unit, my friend, was banned because she also ran BSA units. Just horrible.

So what happened, she made a quick call to our BSA council for a camping site & brought the GS troop to the BSA camp. What kind of message did that send to the girls? Not a positive one for the GSUSA

If you are not treated fairly, take your business elsewhere,  Well done BSA council.

That is indeed horrible.

If, hypothetically, the tables were turned and the BSA was suing GSUSA and advising BSA volunteers to shun GSUSA, I wouldn't do it. I certainly could not ever imagine turning away a unit leader because she was affiliated with GSUSA. That's insane.

Gabriella Burke, the girl who started the petition, did go to the camporee after all -- in Scouts BSA:

The article is a little confusing because the reporter gets the BSA terminology mixed up, but what else is new.
