Kevin taught fire building. He has taught this at both training for boys and was the instructor when one group back out on us when we did our Outdoor leader training. I was honored he was ask and he received rave reviews from people that took his part of the training.

But boys can teach all kind of skills. Tent pitching, lashing, hiking skills, tracking, leave no trace would be a wonderful skill to teach.
your community is a tree. You are either a leaf that feeds it or mistletoe that suckes it dry. Be sure you are always a leaf.

Remember that the skill being taught does not HAVE to be scout related. My younger son taught a group how to change a bike tire.

One of the traditional responsibilities of older Scouts is to teach and mentor younger Scouts. Find a Scout Skill you enjoy and know well. It will help younger Scouts, your troop and yourself at the same time.
