    Look what I found under the Xmas tree

    My wife surprised me with a new Treklight Hammock for Christmas. Can't wait to try it on the next Scout Campout

    RUDDS63, Do you have any restrictions using hammocks with the Scouts? Privacy issues, buddy system, etc.

    Looking to get my son's Troop started but want to avoid potential problems with BSA.

    There is no poilcy with the BSA for hammocks, and are used quite frequently. Myself and two other leaders plus three boys all used hammocks last summer at camp and it was great. Boy's just remember to change clothes in the shower area or the KYBO (out house). I believe Henessey's website has some great photo's of Scouts using them at the National Jamboree.

    As long as there is a designated "spot" to change, both youth and adult, there should be no issues. I change on the backside of my tarp when with scouts. Backside being the side away from everyone else.

    4 season tarps with doors accomplish the same thing.
    Experts are the ones who think they know everything. Geniuses are the ones who know they don't.

    Gather round your hearts the tinder,
    lay the oak and pine together,
    kindle all that is within you with a warm and cheerful spirit.
