Does he have much experience with backpacking? I've been backpacking with my kids since they were 4 and 5, and while the first ones were short (~4km to Point in Kananakis), we've since done Three Isle Lake (when they were 6 and 7) and Iceline in Yoho (when they were 7 and 8). You might be surprised with what kids can do. I find picking out some food rewards (special dessert for example) can make a big difference. Also allow lots of time for them to play (skip rocks, build things etc)
