According to the New York Times, The Boy Scouts of America sent a survey to 1.1 million boy scouts and their parents on March 12, 2013:

The survey offers possible outcomes should the Boy Scouts decide to keep or change its policy. Some address the widespread fear that the scouting movement could fracture or face an exodus no matter what it does.

In January, the organization announced that it is considering lifting the ban on homosexual boys, but it won’t make a final decision until the national annual meeting in May. The survey asks participants their opinions on the recent decision and other technical questions such as, should boys be allowed to share a tent on a camping trip?
