Yes indeed. There must always be 2 adults (one should be a leader)
present. One of the adults present should be female. In addition,
there are adult-girl ratios, which are different for at the meeting
place and on field trips. For example, there must be 2 adults for
the first 12 Brownie Girl Scouts, with an additional adult for each
6 Brownies after that (I think that is the field trip ratio). As the
girls move up through the program groups, less adult supervision is needed.
I don't know if the restriction on men not being The Leader has been
lifted. GSUSA allows for a leader and assistants, or co-leaders. I've
always had co-leaders, but in reality, someone is in charge.
One reason why a woman needs to be there.... When your daughter's period
starts for the first time, on a campout, would she prefer some friend's
dad or some friend's mom?
