It's great to do it this way. While adult leaders are needed for the camp
operation, they have plenty of time to attend training sessions.
Another good one, that probably falls under advancement rather than
training, would be Merit Badge Counselor Orientation. It's quick and easy,
and might got those over the hump who want to be "just parents", because
they don't have to take extra time to attend a session.
YPT would be a good idea, since you are likely to still get parents showing
up at camp without it, as well as computer-challenged adults who would be
appreciative of a sit-down session.
