Cub Scouts must be accompanied by a responsible adult. It need not be a
parent/guardian. You can have an adult be responsible for more than one
Scout, with the exception of the acting Webelos Den Leader present (or
Cubmaster, if a Cub Scout Resident Camp or other approved Pack camping
activity), who can only be responsible for his/her own child(ren). The
assignments of responsible adult<-->child(ren) must be specific.
A child can only sleep (or even be alone in a tent with) a parent/legal
guardian, or blood relative (uncle/aunt, etc.). Otherwise, Scouts sleep
with Scouts and adults sleep with adults. Adults of different genders
cannot sleep in the same tent unless they are married. If they are married,
that's fine, but try to keep the noise down and remember that camp cots
usually squeak. Howver, there is no need to separate the gender's sleeping
quarters from the Scouts or each other, regardless of genders.
