SSScout, I think you mean NYLT, not NAYLE. NYLT is given at the council level. After completing NYLT a Scout may then take NAYLE, which is offered only at the BSA's national high adventure bases. Also, at least in our council, there are limitations on who can attend NYLT. There is an age requirement, a troop can send only a certain number of Scouts, and the SM's approval is required for any registration. Our troop decides which Scouts are going to go (between 1 and 4 per year) and picks up the cost.

Thank you for all of the input.  I'm seeing a lot of the other side of the issues now, so some of them make a lot more sense. 


I believe our plan is to wait it out for one more CoH then move on if my scout isn't happy with how things are going at that point.  Like many of you said, it's more like "Mr. Smith's Scouts" instead of "Boy Scouts," and I don't want to discourage a highly motivated scout by keeping him in a troop that's a bad fit and makes him lose interest in scouting.
