I was at a Cub Leaders Basic Training meeting last night and was shocked
by the statement made by a trainer, just back from National Camping School
and a round of training for Cub Day Camp directors. The statement was
something like: There is a new policy on Webelos Overnight camping
comming: Webelos will no longer be able to camp with just the two
leaders (5 to 1 ratio of course), but will be restricted to "FAMILY CAMPING"
that is they will have to have a 1 to 1 ratio of boys to adult partners.
Say it ain't so someone. As a WDL I know of no way that that would work in
the Webelos to Scout Transition. How could we go along with them on their fall
and spring camps that we have been invited to? (5th graders about to crossover
only). The trainer promised to call national today.
