Boy Scouts of America's decision to allow girls to join was met with mixed responses. But some families in Asheville said they supported the idea.

"It seems like a great idea," Christopher Kragel said, explaining he would let his daughter join if she was interested. "I, myself, I was never in Boy Scouts, but she can join."

Boy Scouts of America's policy change was announced Wednesday.

Their website explains, "Today, the Boy Scouts of America Board of Directors unanimously approved to welcome girls into its iconic Cub Scout program and to deliver a Scouting program for older girls that will enable them to advance and earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout."

The group explained the decision comes after years of girls asking to join.
