Bill, here is what the current Guide to Safe Scouting
Scouts (second and third graders) and Webelos
Scouts (fourth and fifth graders) may participate
in a resident overnight camping program covering
at least two nights and operating under certified
leadership in an established Scout camp operated
by the council during the normal camping season.
A 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.
It is essential that each Webelos Scout be under
the supervision of an adult. Joint Webelos den-
troop campouts are encouraged for dens of
fifth-grade Webelos Scouts with their parents to
strengthen ties between the pack and troop. Den
leaders, pack leaders, and parents are expected
to accompany the boys on approved trips.
Hope this helps.
