The Explorer Advisor Handbook states very clearly that membership of the
Explorer Post; all male, all female, or co-ed; is determined by the
charter organization. That's the way it is.
Quality program is what adult Scouting leadership should be about. We
chartered our all female Explorer Post for quality program opportunities
for the girls in our Cadette and Senior troops. Our Troop/Post
Committee will continue to do what must be done to meet the program
needs of our membership.
If some are offended on either side of the fence - Girl Scouting or Boy
Scouting - so be it. We are not in it for other adults and their
comfort level. We are in it for the youth, in our case the girls.
JUST my humble opinion!
