In many wards they are no longer even affiliated with the Boy Scouts, and only do things as Young Men. This doesn't really solve the problem though.

The Scouting program is the Young Men's program of the Church (in the USA). I don't think a Ward has the option to not have a Scouting program.

Where Scouting is authorized by the Church, all young men ages 12-15 should be registered as Scouts and the Church pays for it. The Church will also pay for it if the Stake decides to continue to offer the program to 16-17 year olds. Where there are not enough young men, the troop's registration can cover multiple wards or the entire Stake.

The LDS scouting program is different to those of other denominations. I heard the one of the Church has a few issues.

Leaders Mormon Their Scouts Boy

The Boy Scouts of America has decided to delay its vote on a proposal to allow local troops to decide whether to allow openly gay members and leaders. The organization said it needs more time to get input from its members. The vote will now be held in May.

"After careful consideration and extensive dialogue within the Scouting family, along with comments from those outside the organization, the volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board concluded that due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy," the Scouts said in a statement.

Until a vote is taken, it appears the organization will continue its ban on gay Scouts and Scout leaders. Ref. CNN

The pressure is building up for the Boys Scouts of America but the stereotypes and intolerance still present in 2013. I know a lot of members of the Church who choose to serve in other organizations related to Boys Scouts because they disagree with this policy and others.

Salt Lake City | Friday, 8 February 2013 00:00:00 -0700 | Misinterpretation of Church's statements on scouting decision

The Church posted two statements Wednesday in response to different media inquiries about the Boy Scouts of America's decision to delay a vote to change its membership policy. Writing about the separate statements, Salt Lake Tribune columnist Peg McEntee claims that in the second statement the Church 'scrapped the reference to a "Moral issue"' which is contained in the first statement.
