Interesting point. And as a former camp director, one I feel qualified to answer on. Said rampaging racoon would have to be dispatched by either the camp reservation ranger, or, preferably, State Fish and Game.
Firearms are used for merit badges at Boy Scout camp, that's it., per BSA National Headquarters.
