CUB & WEBELOS SCOUT UNIFORMING

What's the first thing a boy wants when he becomes a Cub Scout? The uniform, of course. The distinctive blue and gold uniform is undoubtedly one of the major incentives for young boys to become Cub Scouts. It is graphic evidence that they belong, that they are members of the world's largest boys' organization - "The Boy Scouts of America." The uniform also does these things for a boy:

  • It reminds him to live up to the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack, and motto - Do Your Best.

  • It encourages neat, correct appearance as well as proper behavior.

  • It provides the only place for proper display of his badges and awards.

  • It reminds him of the steps along the Scouting trail and encourages him to continue into Boy Scouting.

Please note that individual uniform parts may not be worn with civilian clothing, and that various other types of Cub Scout garments are available, such as T-shirts, sweat shirts, red patch vests, etc. These are for casual wear and are not considered part of the official uniform.

OTHER UNIFORMING - MISCELANEOUS

  • PATCH VEST, CUB or WEBELOS SCOUT
    The red patch vest is not part of the official uniform. It can be worn by Cub and Webelos Scouts for the display of temporary and other patches that have been given to the boy, or that the boy has earned as a part of the Scouting experience. The patch vest may be worn with the uniform except during uniform inspections.
