Pack 247 and Troop 247 for the BSA Adventure Base at the American Royal with CBS Morning Program
While participation in the Boy Scouts of America has steadily declined over the past four decades, and courted controversy by excluding, and then allowing, gay scouts and troop leaders, scouting still has power, and perhaps more relevance than ever. To accommodate changes in the American family, the look of scouting has changed as well, with girls being admitted into Cub Scout dens for the first time. Tony Dokoupil finds out what the boys think about that, and also visits a Boy Scout Troop out of Salt Lake City, many of whose members are refugees from Southeast Asia.
