I think that if he was registered in the den and pack from the day 4th
grade was over until now, he has been an active member of a Den for 6
months. Don't confuse being an active member of a den with - being a
member of an *active* den. Whether the den or pack met or had
activities in the summer is moot. His registration didn't get put on
hold, so he was an active member.
It may not be the way you want to interpret it, but I think BSA would
interpret "active" in that manner.
We've gone 'round and 'round and 'round on this list about being an
"active" member of a Troop or serving in a leadership position. for X
months before getting your X rank. It always came down to: registered =
active, serving = holding the position.
