Girls camping with boys

I will be spending my first week at BSA resident camp this summer, my husband
and I are sharing the week. I plan on bringing my own tents, and gear, so I
won't end up in a pickle about the sleeping arrangements.
I don't really think the GS thinks that all men are perverts, they just have
those rules to protect all, but I wonder why in the front of every BS book,
there is the clip out section on child abuse? I guess to protect all.
I remember when my older son, now 27, was a boy scout, I was the merit badge
counselor for First Aid, I was allowed in because I had something to offer,
but there were no women ever present, I was the only one. Talk about feeling
like a fish out of water! I kept coming back and after a while I think they
kind of liked it.
Those boys were wild, too.
