Backpacking with young kids

Looking for some feedback here.

How old do you start kids with backpack and canoe trips?

Where might you start, and how might you make it interesting for them?

I've done plenty of camping, hiking and canoeing with kids (my own and family members'), but I've never tried to integrate these activities.

From the little I know about scouts, they tend to start this quite late, like 2nd/3rd? grade and they only do a short trips where they hike into a cabin or lean to. This is the little I know of the area I live in, but other areas may do things different?
