    Woodlands Trailmen (ages 5-10) must be accompanied by their dad for overnight stay and will cook together as one large group. (Let leadership know if this is a challenge for your family.)

    Navigators and Adventurers (ages 11-17) can stay overnight with or without dads and will tent and cook together as patrols. Dads should bring their own tents and will cook and eat with the Woodlands.
