No clean answer
It is variable depending upon the Boy, Den Leader, and Troop.
If it works it works. Often the younger boys 11-13 are better
scouts at scouting basics so they are more motivated. I believe
it is also an ego thing of importance leading where they used
to be led.
It also depends on how much your BoyScout Troop uses =
either a Den Chief ASM, SM, or the NP-ASM to monitor
and support the Den Chiefs in Den uplift. If they don't
provide any monitoring and support definetly do and
adjust on your own.
Tom Petrik wrote a nice reply which I agree with occasionally.
As he noted The Best Boy Scout in a Troop could make the worse
Den Chief so adjust for best fit.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
