I know boys who don't like it but still go along to be with their friends.
A couple of weekends a year, or twelve weekends in one year ... And yes Eagle is still available to them.
There's one such boy in every bunch. If he mends gear, keeps the scout house clean, fundraises, lines up presenters for meetings, or masters first aid, I'm fine with it. For some scouts, camping is the side show to an otherwise full life.
When that scout drags his buddies down to the lowest common denominator, (e.g., schlepping at momma''s house while she serves them up pizza and cannoli, and picks up after them ...) That's when I have a problem.
Have you heard of a Scout Patrol that doesn't like to camp?
