I decided not to include the scout camp, because it then still might be
confused with a place where ordinary campers can stay (like is the case
with all options in the proposal). After the long discussion I have tried
to keep the proposal as clean and simple as possible. I hope someone else
will stand up to kick off the camp_site=* proposal for facility levels.
