Scout and brownie clubhouses?

I keep seeing nominations for scout groups and I always decline for the same reason as a school would be declined...

What do other people think of there places?

    It would depend on the primary use of the building. If the sole intent behind the location is for youth to gather, it would be ineligible. If it's a town hall our community center that occasionally hosts cadet meetings, the hall or center would still be eligible.

    Thank you!

    I would have thought though that the person making the nomination would focus on the building rather than the fact that scout groups are held in there.

    I nominated my local Salvation Army building that happens to run brownie groups once a week but is also a very busy local community hub and it was accepted. I wouldn’t have even thought to mention the brownie group thing. I guess if scouts is the major nomination point then the building isn’t worth nominating.

    Thank you for the clarification and apologies if this question has been asked before.

    That's fine. Until (and, well, probably after) it's a published guide it'll keep getting asked.

    Scouting is generally revered as culturally significant, so the person making the nomination thought it stood out enough to be what would make the building eligible. I've also seen people advocate for those types of nominations since the k-12 restriction isn't explicitly against scouting locations.

    Always fair to ask!
