What the well-dressed Cub Scout is wearing

(or what parents need to know about Cub Scout Uniforms)

 

Uniforms are an important part of the Cub Scout experience. They show others that we are proud to be part of a worldwide organization that has helped develop boys into good leaders for many years. In the USA, we see men and women in uniform in police departments, fire departments, and the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. Like these professionals, our wear of the uniform must be right at all times. Here are a few tips for parents about what the well dressed Cub Scout wears.

The hat, shirt, and neckerchief are the most visible aspect of the Cub Scout uniform. The distinctive blue color makes Cub Scouts stand out as someone special. The patches on the uniform identify the unit or group the boy belongs to as well as his personal accomplishments or achievements like rank awards and arrow points. These awards are sewn onto the shirt.

Cub Scouts that start into the Wolf Cub program can usually get three years of wear from a Cub Scout Shirt. This is important as your son will be wearing his uniform to all Cub Scout Den Meetings, Pack Meetings and activities unless the Class B uniform is designated (usually a Pack T-Shirt is worn to clean ups and some Summertime activities).

The official Cub Scout blue trousers or shorts are another distinctive part of the Cub Scout uniform. Worn with the official Cub Scout navy blue socks with the gold top, the trousers (or shorts) complete the uniform. Webelos Scouts may wear the blue Cub Scout or khaki Boy Scout uniform. Webelos cap, neckerchief, and insignia placement is the same for either uniform. They can choose the blue belt with the Webelos Scout buckle or the olive belt with the Boy Scout buckle. Cub Scout belt loops fit only the Cub Scout Web Belt.

Uniform parts should not be worn separately or with non-BSA clothing. Either the entire uniform should be worn or not at all. The Pack does not have the authority to make changes in the uniform.
