I have many boys get their Eagle at 14 and stay with the Program, the POST and
work at Summer camp. In our group, staying or leaving depends most on the
Scout's peers. If he has many friends in the Troop and/or POST he will stay,
if not, he will move on. Scouting is just a phase in time, not a career.
