Thanks to everyone who responded to my previous questions. I now have a
clearer (?) understanding of the official minimum requirements for adults
when rechartering a Post.
However, I'm still confused by the following statement from Mike Walton:
>If your Post decided to go out to Philmont, you will find
>that you will need at least one more female adult to go with you. Now you
>can "cheat" and get a parent to go, which would meet the
>"dual-sexed, two-deep leadership" requirement, but a better way
>would be to get a parent to serve on the Post Committee and
>multiple her as a (Associate Advisor) AA.
This summer we will go to Philmont (Cavalcade). The Advisor (female) and I
(male) will drive two vans with 13 youth and their "stuff". Another adult
(MC, male) will fly there and back because he can't afford to take the full
amount of time off. The Advisor and the other male will accompany the crew
on the trail while I remain behind. Thus, we will have "both sexed,
two-deep leadership" but not "dual-sexed" for all portions of the trip.
Mike's statement above states that we must have 2 females and 2 males as
leaders. I've never heard of that requirement before. Maybe Mike assumed I
was taking 2 crews.
The last time I went to Philmont with a coed Post (not this one), we did
have 2 female and 2 male leaders, but that time we took 2 crews. This time
we only have 1 crew (although Cavalcade crews are a bit larger than walking
We never have 2 females on camping trips (or meetings). The only way we
ever get a second female (and most males) is if we are staying in a resort
(annual skiing trip). One year we went rafting and stayed in a bunkhouse.
The next year those adults said they wouldn't go unless we stayed in a
motel. If was too expensive for me, so I didn't go (I can't afford the ski
Please clarify. If we must have 2 females on campouts, we will never camp
