Sometimes on these outings, there are other crews involved. Could this be
the case? Sometimes a leader from another crew might agree to be available
to make it two-deep (gender-appropriate).
Regardless, a simple discussion with the girl and her folks about the
situation seems to be in order. Line out your expectations of her safety and
health, since she's not usually with you on these events. You might express
that the BSA policy is important to you, since its all come together over 90
years' worth of experience.
By appealing to her integrity, in front of her parents, you put them all on
notice, in a gentle manner, that her wellbeing is a concern. And that
leadership will be 'stretched' for that one day. (Not a night?)
Is the woman leader aware of the strain this situation has become? She might
reconsider her plans, if they're not vital. And shopping is not vital when a
commitment to the Scouts is involved.
I'll bet you all have a great time.

We learned tonight that the female leader who is going on the trip has made
plans to be away from the group for one day midway in the trip. On less than
a weeks notice, we can not find a second registered female leader.
