Just thought I'd give a different perspective on this...
I have been quite amused by all this discussion on whether or not to
allow coffee and coke on camps. From here, it seems completely over
the top to ban these things.
I have never seen any question about this over here - no-one would
even think about banning coke or coffee (or tea, which in fact has
more caffeine in it than coffee... but I won't expect Americans to
know about tea <grin>). It's just not an issue.
Having said this, I don't know any of any scouts who would drink
coffee (scouts is only up to age 15 in the UK). Maybe you just don't
make it strong enough for them to dislike it...
