Our local scout troop looked at me like I was from Mars about 4 years ago when I brought out my hammock at Camp Lanochee. Fast forward 2 years and I tagged along on a campout where there were only 2 tents out of over a dozen campers. Times change.
I'm now a den leader in my son's pack. I've been reading up on the rules of camping with cubs and so far I'm a little confused about hammock use. Some seem to think they don't satisfy the "privacy" rules while others believe they do. I'm going to assume it's up to each pack to figure out what works until there's some kind of problem. Guidance seems to be a little thin, at least in our area.
