Nope. Three options for joining a troop (at the YOUNG end). BE 11 years old,
OR have completed 5th Grade, OR have earned the AOL. So as soon as he has
earned his AOL he is eligible to join a troop, although I do not always
believe that is the best option. But THAT choice is left to the Scout and his
parents. The Pack is not part of that equation.
