Lion Uniform

Kindergarten-aged boys start their Cub Scouting in a simple blue t-shirt with Lion logo and optional cap. Even though their uniform is not as formal as older scouts, it is an important part of the Scouting program, especially for the youngest boys just starting their boy scout trail. It identifies the boys and adults as being members of the Lion den, the pack, and the Boy Scouts of America. Boys enjoy wearing their Lion uniform. They should wear it to den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities.

Adults can wear a Lion polo shirt, or follow their Pack's regular adult uniforming guidelines.

The Uniform Inspection Sheet has insignia placement guides, but no patches go on the Lion t-shirt.
If your Pack gives out patches for activities, they are called 'temporary' patches. See Scouting FAQ page for help - these patches can be displayed on a red Cub Scout vest, wall display, or kept in a shoebox.

Cub Scout Packs can design their own Activity shirt and Lions can wear these, too. The most well-known place to design and purchase Pack t-shirts is the ClassB.com web site. They are an official licensee of the Boy Scouts of America run by Eagle Scouts and have a great reputation of service and quality products since 1982.

The Lion den leader is called a 'Lion Guide' and wears the official Cub Scout leader uniform, or the Lion polo shirt. There is also a Male & Female Leader Uniform Inspection Sheet.

Uniforms and other scouting gear are normally found at ScoutStuff.Org, but since the Lion program is still in 'pilot test' mode in 2016, you can only purchase Lion items at your local scout shop.
