The only way an adult can be responsible for three Webelos Scouts on
a campout is if two of them are his/her sons.
" Webelos Scout may participate in overnight den camping when
supervised by his mother or father. If a parent cannot attend,
arrangements must be made by the boy's family for another youth's
parent (but not the Webelos leader) or another adult relative or
friend to be a substitute at the campout. No parent should be
responsible for more than one boy other than his or her own." (The
