The only reference that I can find is the Scoutmaster's Handbook on p. 134
which implies under No One-on-one Contact that a second adult must be in view
while conducting personal interactions.
As always, the responsibility falls to the Chartering Organization "to ensure
that sufficient leadership is provided." (SM. Handbook p. 134 also)
It would appear to me that the outing and trips thing is a reinforcement for
the Trip Permit requirements and that the BSA as put the onus on the CO to
set their own definition of "sufficient" with regard to scout to adult ratios
on all troop events (meetings, outings, and trips).
Just my thoughts....
