Uniforms and Handbooks

We expect all scouts to have:

A Cub scout handbook

    • The handbook your child(ren) needs also varies by level (see chart below)
    • The handbook is available as a spiral or bound book, the spiral is easier to use, but probably not as durable. Your choice.

Cub Scout Uniform

    • Blue shirt with patches, neckerchief, and neckerchief slide for Wolf through Webelos (1st - 5th graders)
      • The only difference in uniforms by level is by the color of the neckerchiefs (see chart below)
    • For Kindergartner Lions, there is only a t-shirt and hat, which are sold together.
    • There is information in the handbook about where the patches are to be sewn.
    • Hats are optional
