This is a long shot, but who knows.
Maybe your parents, or someone else, would be willing to sag for you. That word describes a support team that would follow behind you or go ahead with camping gear. Find a campground fairly close to home and head on out for an overnighter. This would introduce you to the touring experience, and let a responsible adult participate in the fun.
As you grow older, acquire more gear and experience, and the confidence of your parents, you could venture out on longer and longer tours.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
