I don't have a reference in hand, but its my understanding that unless it is
or Council sponsered event, all CUB Scouts (including Webelos) MUST be
accompanied by their own parent. This applies to all Pack or Den overnight
Our Pack just had a FAMILY CAMPING trip, that was a major success. But we
required that each child have his own parent present. Sleeping was no problem
because all the families stayed together. That makes it much simpler. Check
with your District
Representative to get an official reading.
