Kelly Griffiths: Pack 164, Yorktown Heights, Westchester

As a sister to three boys (and one girl), Kelly has been attending [Boy] “scout things” her whole life. She remembers wishing she could try whittling, but “it was only for the [boys].”

Now she has her chance. “The other weekend we carved soap,” said the sixth-grader at Mildred E. Strang Middle School. “It was ­super-duper fun!”

She’s also still a Girl Scout. “I love both,” she said. “But in my experience, [Girl Scouts] is more arts and crafts and community service. Boy Scouts is a lot of camping, hiking, knot-tying.”

Her mom/den leader, Elaine, said the 11-year-old has “taken her role as a pioneer to heart.”

In fact, Kelly’s big goal is to be a “Golden Eagle”: earning both the Girl Scouts Gold and the Boy Scout Eagle designations — the highest in each organization. “I hope to be one of the first!”
