Uniform

Uniform Info

One of the big components of Cub Scouting is the uniform. We strongly encourage parents to buy a uniform upon joining so that their son fits right in with the other boys immediately. Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos I Cub Scouts wear the blue button down uniform shirt and Webelos II Scouts wear the tan uniform shirt in preparation of entering BoyScouts. Regardless, get a shirt sized a little larger because those little guys grow fast!

Your son will need to get a Cub Scout manual, a uniform with patches, and a den hat. A pack T-shirt is highly recommended for some outdoor activities where a full (“Class A”) uniform would be cumbersome. Following are the detail requirements and the current costs. Uniforms can be obtained from a local Scout Shop. Scroll to the bottom of the page for patch placement.

Note: If it’s your first year in scouting the parents are responsible to buy the neckerchief and slide.  After your first year the Pack will provide it at no cost at Scout Graduation.
