The question regarding how a Tiger Cub could use a zip line was raised, to
which the reply was that the zip line was run by a private party. The
private party is not the defining factor here, but conducting it as a
scouting activity is (which it apparently was because of the TC shirt).
This situation is no different than a pack or den going camping on a non-BSA
property. To go camping as scouts, all leadership requirements must still
be met, youth protection observed, and council approval of the property
obtained--regardless of where it is held. You can't choose to overlook
policy in order to justify doing something. This is one of many reasons
that adult training is important.
