The group has been great with answers before, and I hope you can come
Heres the "problem":
What does the group think about having adult leaders (A.S.M., S.M. M.C.
parents) sleeping with their sons on troop & patrol camp outs? ( I am
not talking about YP, and don't want to down that thread - we are all
aware of those req.)
It is of my opinion that Scouts should be interacting with their patrols
and other Scouts as much as possible. Scouts should camp together, eat
together, Scout together - and adult leaders should do the same - with
other adults while camping. The adults are a necessity on camp outs,
and have their roles, but I believe a line needs to be drawn here.
I have heard of many units who go camping - and they separate each
patrol as well as the adults from each other (sometimes by a good
distance). This gives the boys an opportunity to learn, lead, mature,
and enjoy what Scouting has to offer.
Am I off my rocker??? What does your troop do?
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post to the group.
