Boy Scouts of America: Girls now admitted

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.
