PENINSULA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Boy Scouts of America, Great Trail Council is inviting young women in grades 4-9 to experience a day of outdoor adventures.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 8 at the Manatoc Scout Reservation, 1075 Truxell Rd., Peninsula.

In February 2019, the Boy Scouts of America welcomed young women to join its program.

As the national organization begins its second year of a fully inclusive program, the Great Trail Council wants to show girls from across the area that they can find a home in scouting, council officials wrote.

Over the past two years, the Great Trail Council staff and volunteers have helped found over 20 Troops for Girls throughout Mahoning, Medina, Northern Wayne, Portage, Summit and Trumbull counties.
