There are many roles on a camping trip. These roles are largely dictated by the nature, activities, and purpose of the trip. If there will be swimming, someone needs to be responsible for water safety, if heading into the backcountry someone needs to be responsible for wilderness first aid. More generally someone needs to be responsible for navigation, and general group leadership. These roles must be understood by the person with the role and acknowledged by the group. This understanding and competence by the one responsible and acknowledgment by the group will help move the group through conflicts (read storming) during your adventure. Of all the roles necessary for a trip a really, really, really important role is that of Grubmaster.
