The Lone Scout Memory Lodge Museum was constructed at Camp John J. Barnhardt (NC) and dedicated Aug. 13, 1970. It held a collection of pins, patches, books and other memorabilia that told the story of the Lone Scouts. It closed in 2006 and most contents transferred to the W.D. Boyce Scout Museum, now called Ottawa Historical and Scouting Heritage Museum, in Ottawa, Ill.

Had an interesting topic come up. Have a parent taking their sons to a camp "back home" this summer. They are registering as lone scouts plus the parent. the parent has YPT but is not fully trained. The camp is asking for a tour permit. Since the parent is not fully trained they are not technically valid to be the lead on the tour permit. Any one ever encounter something like this? I was surprised the camp wants a tour permit for essentially "lone scouts". Any suggestions on how to handle?
