"The Scouts in his Troop are all young!", you say.... well, that presents
a great opportunity for him to show leadership. Perhaps he should recruit
adult help to support the boys in doing the work, i.e. organize the adults
to provide transportation, supervision, and guidance to the Scout workers!
Such an effort will add to the scope of his project because he will be in the
position of recruiting adults and youth and then organizing and motivating
them to perform.... whereas you and the family already have the motivation
(to help him acheive Eagle).
I personally would not do the work myself as a dad, but would offer help
in supporting Scout workers (or friends) in doing the work..... if he
and administers the tasks...
Hope this helps,
