The tent size depends on which camp you are going to. Some BSA camps do not require tents, since tents/cabins are available to the campers. You should contact the local council for the tent requirements.

Hops is correct. The reference you're looking for can be found in National Standards for Cub Scout/Boy Scout Resident Camps #19-108B.

 

On page 18, Standard M-45 reads, in part, "Each camper is provided with a minimum of 30 square feet of sheltered space for sleeping and storing personal gear."

Also, if you look in your scout catalog by the tents, it will say that policy. Check with state rules as well because some states require more.
