Some of the PROGRAMS can also be ONLY for the older scouts!
We often take a trip to a Canadian VENTURE outing/moot with
ONLY the older scouts. Gives them time to have FUN, while
not only being the LEADER of the little people. Kind of a
Also a High adventure trek, planned far enough in advnace to
allow the scouts time to earn the money, and give them a long
term goal also had worked for US. After a trip to Philmont
of the Florida sea base, not many scouts would be ready to QUIT!
Once they are away at college, send them a NEWLETTER, and invite
them back for campouts etc.
Just some of what has worked for us.
