It may compromise your camp for sure, but again it all depends on there age, a 1 to 6 year old is a child I would not turn down. I would be on the lookout for adults for sure day and night with my group but would take them in.
I would have a problem turning them down and then a week or two finding them dead. This would be a bigger problem on my mind. We will face many compromises in a SHTF so we will have to make a judgement call for each one we face.
