  • I am not sure what your local cub scouts will accept. My son was in cub scouts last year. He was in first grade but he was 6 when he signed up. I believe they have to be in first grade check it never hurts to ask. I know me and my son loved being in cub scouts and he is looking forward to signing up for another yr. Good Luck!!!

  • I would call the local council in which your children are in. I know mine is atleast 7 or in the first grade, So they can be 6 years old as long as they are in the first grade.
