Uniforms & Gear

Got a new Scout?

Here's a rundown of everything you're going to need, where to get it, and where to put it! Dress Uniforms (i.e., "Class A") should be worn to all Den & Pack Meetings unless otherwise specified. Activity Uniforms (i.e., "Class B" t-shirts) are to be worn to outdoor adventures or other messy scenarios.

Tip: If you buy a shirt that's a little loose-fitting, it may fit your Cub Scout for two years.

Where to Buy

You have several options where to shop. Choose the one that is the most convenient for you.

  1. Garden State Council's "Mobile Scout Store" will visit each Fall during our recruitment meeting
  2. Visit one of the two Scout Stores
  3. Order online at www.scoutstuff.org
