The BSA guide to patch placement is found here:

Time-Saving Tip:   Badge Magic is a super strong adhesive specifically made and cut-to-patch-size for Scout Uniforms.  It lasts through years of regular laundering (but not dry-cleaning) and is available through the Scout store on online at

  • Council Patch*
  • Pack Numbers

To get an idea of pricing, or to order items online, visit This is the official online scout shop. They should have the same prices as our local scout shop.

Patches You don't need to Buy:

Any Rank Advancement Badge or Patch that your child earns will be awarded (at no cost) during the Monthly Pack meetings. You will need to affix them to the uniform, but they are provided.

Where to Purchase Items:

Before most pack meetings a Pack leader normally makes a trip to the Scout Shop. You might contact the Advancement Chair if you need a patch or two - we might be able to save you a trip and pick them up for you at our cost.  You are also welcome to order any needed items online or however you like.

 *The Pack may have Council Patches and other standard patches in stock. Check with the Cubmaster, Committee Chair, or Advancement Chair for availability.

Wearing the Uniform

In general, every Cub Scout should wear his or her field uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, including den and pack meetings, unit outings, and any activities done with members of the den or pack.

 When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, a pack may opt to have the Cub Scouts wear an alternate uniform, such as an activity shirt.

 Pack leaders should provide advance notice of any occasion when Cub Scouts 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.
  • DO NOT mix uniform parts with non-uniform clothing, such as wearing a uniform cap with other clothing or wearing the uniform shirt with blue jeans. The uniform should be treated as a unit—worn in its entirety, or not at all.

Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask your Den Leader for guidance.
