I hope ( and am sure) that someone can help settle a discussion our
Scout Pack had over the weekend. I won't go into the long history of
this, but the question is:
What is the age a Webelo can join a Boy Scout Troop? The discussion
has generally been about 5th grade Webelos, who are at least 10.5 years
old, and have been active in their Webelos Den 6 months. (That should
read 4th grade Webelos). Are these boys eligible for a Boy Scout Troop
in the Fall when they are in 5th grade? The boys in question will have
completed their Arrow of Light by the September Pack meeting (it
appears that they will be awarded it this summer, since the Pack is
active in the Summer).
We are getting quite a few different answers, and some general confusion
exists as well!
Thanks for your help!
