Bob, to your point, in scouts, you can make it a part of the webelos
to scout transition. have a parent or responsible adult come for one
overnight to handle any problems. it makes transition and recruiting
easier for the troop. getting acquainted before the camping event and
working with the webelos/pack leadership is key. kids coming in off
the street can be worked in the same way. i have said to adults
"If you want your son to camp, you need to know what is going to happen."
by the way, the pack had 80-100 and the troop had 50+.
