    I haven’t found it anywhere, so…
    What is the organization’s official policy on coed camping, Boys and Girls troops together in one campsite?

    Second-hand information says it’s not allowed, but it also sounds like the families would prefer that setup. Also, with Summer camp coming up, how do troops/families arrange attendance?

    The YP rules are specific to tenting. Not entire sites.
    Technically, the linked troops can share a camp site if it’s spacious. Girls would be on one side, boys on the other, SM+ASM from each troop in the middle, the remaining adults as far away as possible.
    But, since campsites usually have only one latrine, it might be preferable to have two adjacent sites: one for boys and another for girls.
