We had a few boys not go camping for many of the same reasons,
however, bed wetting is relatively easy to solve. In trying to
encourage a scout to go camping, I spoke with his mom, also a bit
anxious herself, and listed all of the accommodations and remedies we
would afford to get her son out on the trail. When I mentioned bed
wetting as a problem and getting a pediatrician's prescription for
DDAVP as the solution, her eyes widened a bit, but she never spoke a
word. I never pressed for reasons, I only offered possible solutions
to the possible problems.
Three weeks later, her son started coming on overnights as if nothing
was wrong. I know of two other boys whose parents had concerns about
bed wetting and they now refer to DDAVP as if it were magic. It is.
The only drawback is that it is not cheap and it should be kept in a
cooler or refrigerator to keep it's effectiveness.
