Here in UK our Sixes (dens) are integrated for Cubs aged eight to ten. It
has the advantage that the Sixer (Denner) is a more experienced Cub Scout
who can help the others along and can give some positive leadership.
Whilst I have not run a BSA Cub program, from what I have read it should
be possible to select activities which would appeal to both age groups.
Here in UK Beavers are 6-8 and Cubs graduate to Scouts betyween 10 and 11
depending upon their maturity and local factors. Most of our pack choose
to go up on their tenth birthday !
