Uh No. Because just listening to my DD's friends there was beer, sex and a lot of other crap that went on at parties that had no adults there. Maybe if there were no boys and they were going to a actual camping ground, but otherwise No. So many things can happen it's not funny

I never said there were going to be boys there.

Nope. If there is trouble, you are responsible for your kid. 

OK, the question that just popped into my head was, where are they camping and who is going?

You never said there wasn't either.

Edit: So not trying to be a bitch.

My daughters have been on unsupervised camping trips before - once through Scouts (it was a Learning Camp for a young leader, there was a group of adults camping near them but the kids all 14 years and younger looked after themselves for the 2 days of the camp) and a few times with friends.  My girls are very sensible and responsible and I know the friends are also pretty sensible and responsible so I had no qualms about letting them go.  They were camping on the property (a farm) owned by one set of parents so there were adults to 'go to' pretty easily if anything went wrong.

You know your daughter and the kids she plans on camping with - look at them realistically and decide whether or not you would trust them to be responsible without adults there.  Then you can make an informed decision.
