50 states, 50 photos: Scouts BSA launch week was a huge success

With Scouts BSA troops formed in all 50 states, the excitement has officially spread from coast to coast.

For the first time in history, families are registering both their sons and their daughters in the life-changing program formerly known as Boy Scouts.

It’s happening from Alabama to Wyoming … and beyond. Yes, there’s already a Scouts BSA troop for girls in Germany — part of the BSA’s Transatlantic Council.

Today, one week after the launch of Scouts BSA, let’s see what Scouts BSA looks like in your state.

I selected one photo for each state from the hundreds available. Remember: This is just the first week. Imagine what the future will bring as more and more families say … “Scout Me In!”
