Sb: International Scouter Question

Gee, the boys will be excited enough about an 18yr old 'girl' in camp, but
from Sweden too <g>.
OK, seriously... In our area, camp is NOT a boys only program. Our Council
encourages all of our (mostly coed) Explorer Posts to participate in summer
camp as well as all the Troops.
There have regularly been 'girls in camp' all summer long, and we found it
to not be a problem. (it DOES require a bit more supervision, and attention
to sleeping arrangements, but nothing we 'old goats' can't handle)
So, to answer your question, I don't see it as an issue for you, especially
if you already have (had) women in camp in other positions.
