  1. Official Word has been handed down by our Council: For a Webelos overnight campout each Scout needs a parent or parent approved adult (One on One rule applies). One adult cannot be responsible for two scouts even if they are not the leader. As far as tents - They do not want two Dads and two sons sharing a tent. Scouts in one tent, adults (of the same sex) in another is fine. Each parent and scout could also share a tent. Thanks for all of your help to clarify this issue. I know it's not Rocket Science, I just didn't want us to do anything wrong.
  2. Thanks for all of your responses. As you can see there is a great deal of room for interpretation. I really did not want to open this can of worms with our local council and that is why I came here. From what I read in the "Guidelines for Safe Scouting" there seem to be different rules on overnight campouts for Webelos and for younger Cubs. This makes sense since Webelos will be going on to Boy Scouts in just a few months. I really don't see why two boys and their fathers can't share a tent. Technically, the boy is in his parent's tent. It seems rather silly to have only two people
  3. Our Webelos II Den has been invited on an overnight campout with our local Boy Scout Troop. This weekend has specifically been planned for our Webelos to encourage them to continue on into Boy Scouts. I have been told conflicting rules about overnight campouts by our Pack's Baloos. The first thing that my Baloo is telling me is that the Webelos are not allowed to camp as a den unless each Scout has a parent present. The "Guidelines to Safe Scouting" indicates that each Scout must have a parent approved adult responsible for their child on an overnight campout. Which version is correct?
