    • This tells me the outside council may believe your council insurance will apply to your unit, even if you go outside of the council.  Many beliefs turn out to be incorrect.
    • Parental waivers may bar suits by parents, but are generally ineffective against suits by minors, unless approved by the court having jurisdiction over the  minors - often a "Family Court."  Minors have no capability to enter into a contract and parents generally have no power to contract on their children's behalf. Council permission has no effect to  bar liability, but lack of permission may be admissible evidence of negligence.
    • My religion does not impose any rules about not having appropriate one-on-one interactions outside of church functions.  Nor does it impose two-deep adult leadership outside of church.  I don't know of any religion or organization, other than BSA, that does this.  I do think BSA is unique in this regard.  I could be wrong, but I don't know of any.  
    • I interpreted the second Q on this FAQ to mean that if your local council is saying no camping then you need to follow that and not camp outside of council. If my interpretation is correct then you possibly could be liable if someone contracted Covid. You also have to look at it as your Council is taking these measures not just to reduce risk to scouts within your own unit/Council but also because the scouts in your region could present a risk to scouts in another region if you take them out of Council. Considering how Covid rates have varied widely almost by zip code, it seems the more prudent option.  There was a lot of confusion and many differing opinions about it this summer though.  https://www.scouting.org/coronavirus/covid-19-faq/
