First all girls Cub Scout Den Meeting held in Greenfield

GREENFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The very first all-girls Cub Scout group met in Greenfield on Thursday.

The den is working towards getting their Bobcat badges.


Pack 505 in Root River is made up of first-grade girls. Up until 2018, girls were not allowed to join any group of the Boy Scouts of America.

Parents at the meeting in Greenfield say it's a great opportunity for their daughters. "My husband and I are very excited, we think that family scouting is a wonderful idea for our busy family," said Stefanie Bartz.

The Boy Scouts were founded in 1910. Many presidents and astronauts have all been part of the youth organization.
