I have 2 smalls... well one not to small anymore. They did not and will
not go to activities without me or the wife. We do things like take
pics. Our children enjoy the idea we like to participate with them. No
one can watch my child closer than me, nor care as much about him as
myself or my lady wife.

Good idea, in theory, but then you end up with a lot of adults to
as well, and they don't get to do what they came to do either. The
likewise, need time to play with and make new friends as well, without
parents looking over their shoulders.
I love the idea of "payment" for babysitting services (I use that term
because in my observation that's what MOC activities have been used for
many parents) in the form of a hour or two of your own time. ANYONE can
ONE hour during an event to come and help the (usually quite overworked,
IMO) MOC. If you have two parents, they can even split at half an hour
if they like.
I look at it this way, this is no different from a school trip, or
camp. The parents don't all go on these trips, but a couple teachers or
councelors do. However, in both cases the parents are shelling out money
let their child participate in these activities. In our case, we're only
asking for a bit of their time, a small bit. If you can scrape up the
for summer camp, you can find an hour to volunteer with the MOC.
