Yah, that's creative, eh?
Are yeh really lookin' for a "rule" on this, @Hedgehog? Good heavens, why?
Scoutin' is a kids game, and this is a classic youth leader choice. I bet da use of pirate headscarfs in your troop will be more "uniform" than da use of the uniform. It will bring a sense of identity and teamwork that's exactly what we want to encourage, particularly at camp. It will be fun. It will make your troop stand out for its spirit. Your kids will talk about it for years.
I'd let it be. It will be good fun for awhile, and good scouting. I reckon I'd actually join in and figure out what to bring to help the lads lash up some piratical camp gadgets.
Or, if for some reason yeh really don't think it's a good idea or fits da image the Scoutmaster/Committee/CO wants, then just say "no". You don't need a "rule" to act like an adult. Yeh just do it. The boys will respect yeh a lot more if you stand on your own two feet and don't try to hide behind some remote BSA regulation.
In that case though, given da camp theme, I reckon yeh need to put on your "fun" hat and be ready with an alternative. Maybe old school USN caps from da era of the Barbary Pirate Wars. Your troop could be da anti-piracy navy at the Pirate Camp, with a mission to win every contest/battle against all da other "pirate" troops!
