National's Youth Protection policy is quite clear, and specific, as follows:
No adult is allowed to share a tent with ANY boy EXCEPT his/her own son.
> At the WEBELOS level, overnighters can be boy-adult oriented.
> However, for WEBELOS it is strongly recommended that boys share tents

So is NATIONAL!!!
Get a copy of the Youth Protection policies to back you up -- but this is not a
question since National, and our legal department has stated it with no room
This helps those of us who are adult volunteers -- it ALSO has a side effect,
Dads and Moms will just have to attend Webelos campouts now. (Of course 1-1
has always been the rule).
Cub Scout do NOT camp except as family camping OR in a Council Cub Scout
Residence camp on COUNCIL property, with the proper protection.
Family camping and Webelos Camping are not the same, in spite of the requirement
of one adult for each Webelos Scout.
