Make sure you cover what kinds of camping the BSA will authorize for Cub Scouts to do and not to do, and what that means to the units liability. I am thinking specifically of the rampit 'unofficial' campouts that Packs seem to do on a regularly, scheduled basis.
Encourage all Webelos leaders to attend Scout Leader III (outdoor) training.
Talk to your council camps and find out what services/facilities they offer to Cub Scouts.
Make sure you have a good definition of what 'family camping' means...you will be asked.
Hope this helps,
