My opinion is if the troop committee accepts the trip as "official",
then it counts.
I'm not advocating breaking OA rules, the trip still needs to be under
the guidelines that Merl pointed out.
I feel if you get a national tour permit, follow the Guide to Safe
Scouting, and actually campout (not in hotels or gyms, etc) then the
nights should count.
BTW, my troop took a week to go to Gettysburg/Washington in August. We
spend 2.5 days hiking and camping in Gettysburg, and 2.5 days camping in
Maryland and touring D.C. We had a ball!
