San Fernando Valley Girl Scout Council
March 12, 2012 by staff
San Fernando Valley Girl Scout Council, Scouting in California has a long history, from the 1910s to the present day, serving thousands of youth in programs related to their environments.
In the early days of Scouting there were several different Scouting type organizations. Some of the organizations known to have members in California were:
American Boy Scout (also known as the United States Boy Scout organization)
Boy Scouts of America (BSA)
California Boy Scouts
Peace Scouts of California
The Boy Scouts of United States (a wing of the National Highway Protective Association), Young Men’s Christian Association and the Salvation Army may have also had Scouting type programs in California.
In 1914, parents and Chinese-American boys organized their own Boy Scout troop in San Francisco, the first troop for Chinese Americans and possibly the first troop in San Francisco. It was recognized as Troop 3 once San Francisco became a council. The troop continues today.
