For starters, I wouldn't wait until next year. We had similar problems
with a boy at camp this year. First thing I did upon reaching home was
talk to the parents. I also suspended the scout from the next field
trip, and let him know that I would need to see real improvement if he
wanted to come to camp next year.
As we were beginning preparations for camp. I had several talks with
scouts (and parents), letting them know that camp was a lot of fun, but
that it also would demand a lot of maturity and responsibility from
them. There were a few boys who we decided in consultation with the
parents were not quite ready.
Good luck. Let us know how it works out.
