Brother H is so good about answering emails!
"It's not that the older boys don't do scouts...they do. Maybe just not as formally as the deacons. They boys will continue to be encouraged to earn their Eagle Scout award and make progress, including help with the Eagle project. They are invited to regular scout camp and the teachers and priests have a week long high adventure activity that always results in lots of fun and plenty of scouting advancement. "
Well, good. Pretty much. I don't know if is my nostalgia or resistance to change or what, but I don't know if that satifies me. I love and "believe in" the Scouting program within the Aaronic Priesthood.
