It's really too bad the scout isn't old enough for high adventure programs like Philmont, NT or Sea Base.  Maybe someday....

Kids from that part of the country are ready by 12. We do a ton of HA here. He's over qualified. :)

One of the 11 year olds in my troop has more backpacking miles on his feet than I do. He's done several sections of the AT with his dad. He was the Scout that did the backpacking instruction a few weeks back. In fact dad said Boy Scouts is cramping his camping with all the plop camping we do. He's talking about him and his son doing the Philmont prep trips.
