But Philmont won't allow you to use a tarp, if that's one purpose.
I'll also bet the tarp and netting you use will weigh more than these tents. Ultralight tarp material is not cheap.
AKA yellow water. 😁
Correct. The most often confused statement in YPT and the one so many Scouters feel they know, but it's not what they think
From the BSA - FAQ on YPT - https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/email/campaign/Youth-Protection-FAQ_03-07-2018.pdf
Effective June 1, 2018, adults accompanying a Scouting unit who are present at the activity for 72 total hours or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training. The 72 hours need not be consecutive
Note that they are referring to THE activity, not ALL activities. If they come to summer camp driving up Sunday, leaving Tuesday morning (48 hours), then come up Thursday night and plan to stay until Saturday for the drive home, the 72 hours would apply.
Now - don't get me started on how Scouters may not understand the difference between 2 Deep Leadership and No One on One contact.
