Re: Cub Scout Camping Options
Here are my 2 cents on your questions/comments:
Webelos Den Overnighter normally have a smaller number of participants
than a Pack Overnighter. This reduces the number of adults available
to work run an activity separate. Also, Scouting Skills tend to be
taught at a Webelos Overnighter that require closer attention by
The title Local Tour Permit and National Tour Permit have been the same
since at least the late 70's when I was a Youth Leader in my Troop. I
will admit that 500 miles, but it is about an 8 hour drive on an
Interstate Highway. This should be the limit for one day's driving
with Scouts as passengers. That would be my guess as the distinction
between Local and National.

It seems strange to me that Cub Scouts can go camping with a 1 to 2
ration whereas Webelos need a 1 to 1 ration of adults to scouts. Is
there some logic to this seeming discrepancy? Is there something I am
not taking into account that is different between a Cub Scout
Overnighter and a Webelos Den Overnighter?
My second commend has to do specifically with the LOCAL Tour Permits
(emphasis on the LOCAL). It is in my best interest to keep my mouth
shut and let my Council define for me what LOCAL means (they have
been very generous in their definitions).
