My question is, can I teach only one scout Ad Altare Dei. My wife and I are very active in our faith and believe that we can do it. We are both ministers and my son as already received confirmation and communion.
I would like to hear some suggestions.

Medic1, be aware... this is not a BSA program... but many (many, many) are BSA-'approved'.
Any youth (in the same age range) can earn these (respective) awards. I.e., Girl Scouts, Sunday School class, et al.
It's just that only the BSA-youth get the little purple knot along with the award.
