One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Umrah hajj of child minor
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Ibn Abbas reports: "The Prophet (saws) said: 'Any minor (child) who performs Hajj must perform it again after coming of age.’

As-Sa'ib bin Yazid says: "My father performed Hajj with the Prophet (saws) who was performing his Farewell Hajj, while I was only seven years old." This was reported by Ahmad, Bukhari and Tirmidhi, who noted: "All scholars agree that if a minor performs Hajj, he must repeat his Hajj upon coming of age.”
Jabir reports: "We performed Hajj with the Prophet (saws) and a number of women and children were with us. We said ‘talbiyah’ on behalf of the children, and (also) threw pebbles on their behalf.”

It is reported from Ibn Abbas that during a Hajj a woman lifted a boy, and asked the Prophet (saws) , "Will this boy be rewarded for the Hajj?" The Prophet (saws) answered: "Yes, and you too will be rewarded." (The boy will be rewarded for his obedience, while the mother/guardian will be rewarded for helping and instructing him to perform Hajj.)
Indeed brother, if one takes a minor to perform the Hajj or Umrah pilgrimage, both the minor and the guardian who helped them perform the rites will be rewarded.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
