I have dug out my old BSA "National Standards for Boy Scout/Varsity Scout
Long-Term Summer Camps", document 20-111A ... I won't look for the '92
version in the rush of getting ready for Philmont ... but I've heard that a
new version was not issued this year.
Requirement 63 of the year 1988, required for Class "A" accreditation, reads
"At least 30 square feet of sleeping space is provided for each camper.
Two-boy, fire retardent tents are recommended with 30 inches or more between
heads. Tents should met the fire retardency speicifications by the canvas
manufacturers (CPAI-84). Minimum state standards must also be met."
It's not unreasonable to expect that the requirement has been upgraded since
'88 to 36 square feet per camper.
