National Boy Scouts requires all Cub Scouts and Webelos scouts to be accompanied by an adult for each camping trip. The Kinus is at a very large campsite with hundreds of kids, and the staff cannot be responsible for each and every child.
Each scout attending the Kinus must have some adult who is directly responsible for them. Boy Scouts may get permission from their Troop Leader, and may use their Troop Leader as their responsible adult, if their Troop Leader agrees. If a scout is attending without his parents, guardian or troop, he may contact the Kinus Chairman at firstname.lastname@example.org for arrangements.
We strongly encourage all parents to attend and make the Kinus a family affair.
We love the camaraderie with our fellow Jews, the beautiful environment, and the fun activities that take place during the Kinus. It’s a chance to meet the old friends from all over the Northeast who attend the Kinus each and every year. It’s the chance to see the excitement in our children’s faces when they accomplish something while having fun at the same time.
However, if the parents cannot attend, they can send their kids with another adult such as a grandparent, an uncle or aunt who would love the chance of spending time with their grandchild, niece, or nephew.
