We have a troop with 60 scouts. The scouts are encouraged to use their own
tents, but the troop has enough tents to cover those scouts who do not have
their own. We encourage them to buy inexpensive 2 or 3 man dome tents. Most
scouts have their own tents and prefer to use them. The scouts without tents
usually stay with scouts who brought their own. This system has worked very
well. Scouts learn to be responsible for their own tents and the troop does
not have storage or maintainance problems.
