The rules that you were referring to in your message were set down by a Pack
(actually imposed by the Committee Chairperson) who was either unfamiliar
or uncaring about the policies of the B.S.A. Sometimes over here we have
think that their morals are so superior to other peoples' that they have the
right to impose
them on others.
The B.S.A. policies in this area are that 1) there must be at least one
female leader on
any trip that includes female youth, 2) females and males youth may not sleep
3) female and male adults may not sleep together unless married, and 4) youth
adults may not sleep together unless related by blood.
If I missed one, B.S.A. members are free to correct me, but I believe the
above is correct.
What you saw in the original "Females at Camp" postings is an anomalous
does not reflect either B.S.A. policy. I personally believe that it also
does not reflect the
feelings of the vast majority of Americans.
I took 21 Cubs (all boys) and 17 adults of both sexes up to camp for 4 days
and 3 nights
recently, and the subject of who was sleeping with who never even came up,
a logistical level (making sure we had the right number of tents...).
