Someone may have posted this so forgive me if it's duplication. From the
BSA Rules and Regulations:
"If a well-meaning leader brings along a child who does not be these age
guidelines, disservice is done to the unit because of distractions often
caused by younger children. A disservice is done to the child, who is not
trained to participate in such an activity and who, as a nonmember of the
group, may be ignored by the older campers".
The R&Rs list, individually, those groups of youth who are eligible to
attend camping activitis. Younger children are not in that group and I
personally infer that any leaders who permit young children to attend will
NOT be covered by BSA liability protection unless the camping activity is
billed as a "Family camping experience". It certainly would not apply to
children who attend activities that are part of the normal camping program
for the troop (monthly campouts).
