Our troop's policy has been similar to what you've outlined below; the
adults can bring folding/lawn chairs and the Scouts cannot, nor can they
use the adult's chairs. However, the Scouts are allowed to bring a small
stool, such as tri-pod stools or folding stools (which I believe are in the
Scout Catalog). If all Scouts are operating under the same rules, I don't
see a problem with some having and not others.
