Agree with Jay
Comradely in adventure is probably the main point for most of us - we're having fun in the same way we did back when kids would go off for a day of exploration.
To superimpose bureaucracy would subtract from that - the only way to have both the fun and a level of safety is to stress that the individual is ultimately responsible. Use what age has taught you about preparation but don't forget the thrill of adventure.
