Boys-only weeks at camp in Summer Camp Posted October 4, 2018 4 hours ago, shortridge said: Was there a significant demand from your existing troops to segregate summer camp like that? Our troop is engaged in summer camp planning right now. During the discussions, I alerted the boys that next summer they will be joined by girls at summer camp. Several boys then asked that we organize our own summer camp instead and completely avoid BSA summer camps. Those discussions are still ongoing. The concept of co-ed summer camp is proving to be a big deal for both boys and parents. 4 hours ago, shortridge said: For summer 2019, my council has set aside a quarter of the total camp weeks for only boys’ troops. Is anyone else seeing or doing this? With so few girl troops anticipated, perhaps the real question should be why so many summer camp weeks are being designated as co-ed.
