My Son is in 5th Grade and has been active six months and is well over the 10.5 months in age plus he will have completed all of his AOL requirements by the Second Week of December. The only activity he lacked is the Patrol Method that the AOLs started last week.
My plan was that he would get his AOL in December and join Boy Scouts before the winter school break so he can start working on those requirements.
I also thought we would have him continue to go to his AOL Den meetings when the rest of the den was not working on units he already completed (he is ahead after doing a few Webelos College events plus we did several in the summer camping).
I read in another discussion thread however that a kid can not be in BOTH Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts at the same time. Can anyone confirm and post references?
If so I need to talk with my son. The rest of the kids will transition in March/April but because my sons birthday is early and he has completed most of the Webelos/AOL activities already I have been open to both our Cub Pack and the two Boy Scout troops he is considering that he was going to go early - but I didn’t know he wasn’t supposed to keep doing AOL stuff once he starts working on Boy Scout Requirements!
