MANDAN (KDLM) - The first full-female Boys Scouts den in the Northern Lights Council has been chartered in Mandan, ND.
The female den from Pack 153 currently has four girls who have started meeting and earning rank advancements, according to a post on the Northern Lights Council's facebook page.
The Boy Scouts of America in October 2017 announced plans to broadly accept girls, marking a historic shift for the century-old organization. The Northern Lights Council serves all of North Dakota, parts of South Dakota, northwestern Minnesota and northeast Montana.
