The Issue: Boy Scouts of America recently rebranded itself to include girls in its program causing confusion, questions, and now a lawsuit. On November 6, 2018, Girl Scouts of the USA sued BSA over an alleged trademark infringement of the word “scouts” and its variations in connection to a girl program.
Amid this confusion, families are looking for alternatives with clearer boundaries. American Heritage Girls firmly believes in the benefits of a Christ-centered, girl-focused program that is specifically tailored to the needs of a girl. For this reason, AHG remains committed tocelebrating a girl’s journey of discovery of who she is and whose she is in Christ today and in the future.
Learn more about AHG and the benefits of a Christ-centered, outdoor adventure and girl- focused program through a conversation with AHG Executive Director and Founder, Patti Garibay.
