There are two requirements to consider: two-deep leadership and Youth
Protection Guidelines (YPG).
As I understand things (and I'm sure Bruce Cohen will help out if I get
it fouled up), two-deep leadership means that two adults, at least one of
whom is registered as a BSA leader, need to be present on outings.
YPG state that a scouter can't be alone with a youth member of BSA unless
that youth member is the child of the scouter.
To apply these principles to your situation, you'll have more than one
adult along on the outing, so the two-deep requirement is covered. If
you make sure the cars are full, you will have the YPG covered. Make
sure each scouter takes his own son home last and the scouter won't be
alone with a cub not his/her own.
Two adults in each car is too silly.
