    Lots of good things already mentioned form what I've read. Admit haven't read them all. here's things I've seen or heard done.

    1) 1 leader entire week with other leaders/parents in and out of camp. 20yo ASM was the "Camp SM" with all the other adults reporting to him.

    2) Two, and in one instance 3, units short staffed staying in the same campsite and working together to cover leadership.

    3) A staffer, and in the case of a provisional troop 2 staffers, assigned to be the leaders for the week.

    4) DE assigned as a leader for the unit for a week. This was a brand new unit, as in it became "official" about a month or two before they went to camp. Took me 5 months to get it started, and I wasn't going to let anything prevent it from attending summer camp and getting the scouts hooked. Bad news is that I couldn't go on the HA expedition I was suppose to lead, and ended up teaching Lifesaving MB that week as well.
