Co-ed [Exploring mostly]: Events that take place that involve both
male and female youth members. The term originated in the American
sixtees, when Exploring programs were made "co-educational" and
females were allowed to serve as associate members of Exploring posts
and ships. It is one of those American "slang" terms used even before
When we in Scouting in the USA talk about coed or co-ed events, we are talking
about those events that have both males and females in attendance as
youth members. While other countries have programs sexually
integrated, the BSA and the GSUSA programs are for the most part
exclusively one-sex programs (except for the BSA Exploring program and
elements of the BSA Varsity and Venture Scouting program which may
have female "associates". )
