As the assigned camping chairman for our district, I have run into this with our
Camporees, and it was presented to me as the reason our local LDS troop rarely
went to camporees. It seems that former camping chairs had wanted to require
all units to participate for the full weekend. When I stated that they could
leave on Saturday as their religion required, they not only joined the camporee,
they supplied half of my event staff!
