BSA Long-Term Camping Tent Policy
Long-term camping is defined as five or more consecutive nights of
camping. The Camp Health and Safety standards of the Boy Scouts of
America require that "each camper is provided with a minimum of 30 sq.
ft. of sheltered space for sleeping and storing personal gear." Please
note, some states may require more square footage per camper.
