Wearing the Uniform

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

When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, a Cub Scouts should wear an alternate uniform, such as an activity shirt. These are sometimes referred to as Class B Uniforms.

Our Pack provides the Scout a Class B.  In addition, our Pack considers any Scout shirt a Class-B including those bought the Scout shop or earned during activities such as Cub-O or Day Camp.

Pack and Den 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.  Earn a bead, loop or patch, apply the patch.
  • 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 the Pack or Den leaders for guidance.
