How do I know if it is safe for my child to go on scout campouts? And I don't mean because of the animals.

In brief: Go with him
Become involved in the scouts and the troop.
Depending on the age of the child, you may be required to go with him. Or you can go as a parent and chaperone. That way you will have the information you seek and peace of mind.

In brief: If You Are Not Sure
Dr. Ruiz-healy's response is excellent.
I would add that if you are not sure, do not allow it.
