Question about power tools

One of my Scouts just asked me about BSA requirements on the use of
power tools. He is planning an Eagle project that would require some
use of power tools.
In context, we have had several projects at a nearby National Park
where the Park Service required power tools to be operated by adults
only. Also, at the summer camp where my son & this Scout worked this
past summer, only those 18 & older were permitted to use power tools.
I just glanced at the on-line version of the Guide to Safe Scouting
and found no mention of any restrictions on the use of power tools by
Scouts. Does anyone know otherwise?
