Tenting: 2 years apart in Open Discussion - Program Posted April 27, 2019 I think that tent arrangments are an area where the differences between what girls collectively tend to like and what boys tend to like may show up. What I have seen (both when I was a kid, and also when I was a girl scout leader) is that girls would like their whole friend-group to be in one big tent. So, yes, pack six or seven girls into one of those big platform tents that the girl scout camps have -- and everyone is happy. Need to split a group of elementary-aged girls between two separate tents -- and all kinds of drama might break out. Fortunately, the Scouts BSA girls are a little more mature in their reactions than the younger ones.
