It has been a couple of years, but our Webelos were routinely
invited to join the local troop at camporees, and spent both
friday and saturday nights overnight. They, of course, had to have
an adult with them, but until there was some change in district
Boy Scout chairmen, this was never a problem. They were allowed
to compete against other Webelos dens (patrols) in the planned
activity, and I believe it made them more ready for the transistion
into Boy Scouting after their cub scouting careers were over.
IMHO it was too bad that this tradition was not allowed to continue.
