I understand that obese scouts can’t attend because of stress of hiking up steep slopes.
I’ve taken obese Scouts to Philmont at least 3 times, and they typically lose 30 to 50 pounds over two weeks.
It’s life-changing for them.
Most have been coddled by helicopter mamas or ignored by dual-incomers all of their lives.
When they return the next year they are always in better shape and have vastly better attitudes.
because they are not sexy enough maybe
