    • Yeah, I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.  If you think that quote is requiring all parents to attend camping activities, you should keep reading: both the next couple paragraphs of GTSS and the rest of this thread which clear up any confusion.
    • My supplier had the gall to go off to college a year early. But, I have not seen anyone with samples. There's always that percentage of customers that will try something new from a product line. So that's the market that this sort of thing is meant to target. I suspect one has to make a bet as to where the most novelty seekers will be. I'm a novelty seeker when it comes to jerky and salsas ... mainly because I frequent a street in town where importing new ideas for agricultural products is a way of life. But, I'm not that way when it comes to chocolate, baklava, or coffee. Mainly because I've found variation from my preferred brand has met with disappointment while others who've tried my preferred brand have found enlightenment. Thin Mints and Samoas have me in their thrall. So, lacking a sample, I'm sticking with those.
    • I guess we are not a 'select market'.  I had to live with my usual 2 boxes each of Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Peanut Butter Patties, Caramel Delights, and S'Mores.  😁
    • Age Guidelines  The Boy Scouts of America has established the following guidelines for its members’ participation in camping activities: Overnight camping by Lion, Tiger, Wolf, or Bear Cub Scouts as dens is prohibited. Webelos dens may participate in overnight camping. Lions, with their adult partner, may participate in child-parent excursions, pack overnighters, and council-organized family camping. Tigers, with their adult partner, may participate in child-parent excursions, day camps, pack overnighters, council-organized family camping, or resident camping. Tiger, Wolf, and Bear Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts may participate in a resident overnight camping program operating under BSA National Camping School–trained leadership and managed by the council. Den leaders, pack leaders, and parents are expected to accompany the youth on approved trips.
