I have a question this morning that I KNOW will bring quick answers!
What is the age requirement to become a Boy Scout? Last year in our troop, we
had 2 first-year Webelo dens. During the summer, the other Webelo den leader
took his den and formed a Boy Scout Troop. I was originally told that he was
keeping the boys as Webelos, they would just meet at the same time as the new
It came to my attention last night that these boys are indeed Boy Scouts. They
are the same age (5th grade, 10 and 11 years) as my soon. He now wants to know
why he is still a Webelo and his friends are Boy Scouts!
I thought the boy had to have finished 5th grade to become a Boy Scout.
Thanks for your help!
