Tenting: 2 years apart

Recommended Posts

As far as age of Scouts are concerned, use mature judgment and common sense to see how the youth sort themselves out.  National’s health and safety lawyers can be 27 different kinds of paranoid, the unit serving direct contact leader has to make it work.

Unit leaders need to use judgement when implementing scouting events, but we should NOT imply that the rules are not the rules.  When GTSS says on page two "Youth sharing tents must be no more than two years apart in age", then we have a duty to implement that.

I hate backpacking on trails where horses are allowed. They chew up the trails so they are really dusty. You get stuck behind them on the trail and you're eating more dust. You get to your destination and finally find the perfect campsite only to find horse manure all over the nice flat area where you want to set up your tents. 

Same issue with cattle at Philmont.
