-} Are we so refined that we can't find a way to understand that some
-} boys just like sleepin' outside! Many girls like slumber parties too.
I think the issue is whether or not boy scouts on a scout campout should be
sleeping in the backyard (on what sounds like a regular basis). In
Louisiana, I allowed my "newbie" patrol to sleep in my backyard the first
time, as none of them had ever camped out without parents before. After
that, no way. Personally I think that the boys will drop out if backyard
camping is part of the program. After all, many boys are attracted to
scouts because of the camping experience. They don't need scouts to set up
a tent in a backyard....
