I was brought into this foray because a "couple" joined our crew. He
was 18 and she was 15. I had to act fast.=20
You can't stop it. It's going to happen so you should establish rules
and go from there.=20
1) NO boys in girls tents. NO girls in boys tents.
2) In cabins NO boys on a girls bed, NO girls on a boys bed.
3) NO kissing, etc. on any outing.
4) NO coed buddies unless it is a TRIAD.
This keeps them in plain site, off each others beds, not necking (is
that the word they use today), and no boy-girl teams off to the woods.
Notice use of the word TRIAD. Quartets have a tendency to split into
couples AFTER they are out of site.
It aint fool proof, but it sets guidelines.=20
