I know this has been probably discussed before, but I need some advice. We have a single MOM , late 20's that wants to join her son on Camp outs. He just crossed over from a visiting pack. I am the CC and have never had any problems in 3 years to really deal with. I have been blessed in this area. I am one of the newer members of the troop (4 YEARS). We have one gentleman who is and has been one of the main cogs for the Troop (ASM)for several years. He is serious about no women camping. I know that the BSA does not descriminate against women and If she joins the Troop as a Committee member she should be allowed to go on the camp outs. I could deal with it. She would have to be informed on how the troop performs on camp outs, no bathroom facilities, no mothering etc. Here is the kicker, she has a 10 year old daughter that she wants to bring along. It just further complicates the situatuon. I am leaning toward telling her to get some one to watch her daughter instead if trying to bring her on these camp outs. Then I hope and pray that men do not leave the Troop because of this. The ones who may leave are really the backbone of the Troop and it would not be a good thing to lose them.
