The organization name is NOT changing. 

The Boy Scouts of America will continue to provide leadership and character development programs for boys and girls ages 5-20. Truth: As seen in this chart, one of the five programs offered, Boy Scouts, will be changing to Scouts BSA.  Fun fact: Girls have been a part of Scouting for decades – since ’98 in Venturing and since the 70s in Exploring.

#3 Despite reports to the contrary ...
The LDS Church will be using their own program in 2020, but has asked for everyone to “remain a fully engaged partner in Scouting” through Dec. 31, 2019. 

“All youth, families and leaders are encouraged to continue their active participation and financial support of Scouting,” the LDS church said in its joint statement with the BSA. So for now, go enjoy summer camp, earn awards, learn values, charter for next year, and do it all again! It will work out. Oregon Trail Council is 30% LDS Scouts and fully committed to helping each and every boy who would like to continue his path to Eagle by helping connect them with a local pack or troop ready to welcome these new “all-in” Scouts. This process will likely begin next fall (September 2019). Details are in development. Bryan on Scouting helps clarify things. Official LDS Church announcement
