Topic - 11 year olds carrying exped packs

girlymonkey - on 15 Oct 2013
I have been booked to take a bunch of teenagers on a 3 day exped, so planned a route from Victoria bridge (near bridge of Orchy) over to Taynuilt via loch etive. This seemed reasonable exped for teenagers. I have now been told that I have three 11 year olds and a 12 year old as part of the group, and one of the 11 year olds has written on the equipment request that she has size 2 feet. I've never had such young kids carrying exped packs - anyone taken kids of this age on multi days and what's the chances of this being feasible? There are some older kids too, and quite a few adults, so we can share some of the weight around, but the company have stupidly heavy kit for them anyway (vango self inflating mats rather than foam ones, really heavy stoves etc).
