Wearing the Uniform

- Click on a scout above to see a uniform guide for that rank -

In general, every Cub Scout should wear his Class A uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, including Den and Pack meetings, outings, and any activities done with members of the Den or Pack.

When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, the Pack may opt to have the Cub Scouts wear an alternate uniform consisting of the Pack T-shirt. This is referred to as the Class B Uniform. For 2012-13, all registered Cubs with Pack 815 will receive one of our newly designed Pack T-shirts sometime in Sept-Oct. The cost of the T-Shirt is covered by your Pack dues. Parents can purchase additional T-shirts as needed.

Pack leaders should provide advance notice of any occasion when the boys should wear anything other than the complete uniform.

Here are some tips for wearing the uniform:

    • DO keep the uniform clean and in good repair. The official uniform is a sturdy, machine-washable garment that will last for years with proper care.

    • DO be sure to wear the complete uniform. A Cub Scout wearing a uniform with parts missing is not in uniform.

    • DO NOT wear non-BSA badges, awards, or insignia on the Cub Scout uniform or make any alterations to the uniform or insignia.

Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask your den leader for guidance, or go to the fancy-schmancy, visually impressive BSA Uniforms site (uses Flash, so may not work on Apple iPad, iPhone, etc.) or to the much more bland, yet equally informative Cub Scout Uniform page.
