Your question is one that almost every Pack has to answer and it was a
good question. There is always going to be a desire to have a family Cub
Scout encampment and just as often a Cub, whose parents cannot or will
not be there for him. Your question evoked a great deal of well meaning
advice because many Scouters have wrestled with the same question.
Sometimes though this can be confusing.
Your best bet, is as Bill Nelson suggested - see your local District
Scout Executive and discuss with him your Council's rules about family
camping. Likewise, you can obtain a copy of the Guide to Safe Scouting
at your Scout Service Center to read the National rules yourself. But
you still need to talk to the DE, because your Council may have special
rules of its own regarding family camping for Cubs.
