I'm sorry Amber, I can't recommend it. Let him take Cricket if she would like camping.

Has Bamm gone fishing with you before?

If your primary concern is Bam, I would have him stay home. If your primary concern is your husband, and this is a large issue for him, let him take him and see what happens. It'll probably be okay.

With Bamm's issues and the extent of his issues I would not let Josh take him. I would hate for him to get more of a history or worse.

This. Is it worth risking your dog's life?

I'm confused as to why he wouldn't take Cricket, who seems much more bombproof and safe in such a situation than Bamm?

Knowing a little about Bamms(from what you said on here). I wouldn't let him take Bamm. I couldn't let Steven take Ivan. Ivan can be a bit unpredictable in certain circumstances(when you don't watch the body language). and listening to people. But I would worry the whole time, because I know my husband doesn't read him as well as I would. AND Ivan is more likely to blow Steven's commands off and do what he wants.
So just to be safe, I'd say no, but let him take Cricket if hes ok with that.

Just from reading about Bamm's issues, I'd say no. If it was you going for a girls' camping weekend, I have no doubt your primary focus would be on Bamm and how he's handling situations, with the girls coming in second place. I just don't see your husband having that kind of focus on Bamm, especially with his friends around, and it only takes a split second for things to go wrong.

If I were Josh, I wouldn't want to take a dog along as I'd have to put the dogs needs and safety above everything else, which could make the weekend not very fun at all.

I wouldn't but that's just because I think it can suck to have to watch after a dog that's not 100% off leash good and reliable around people. It wouldn't work when we camp with any dog most of the time. Tell him to go and have fun without any worries.
