Uniform Guide

Wearing the Uniform

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

Your scout should/will be encouraged to wear their uniform appropriately. The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. A scout represents the entire Boy Scout Organization while in uniform.

Where and what to buy

Uniforms are available at the Scout Shop at the BSA Council office in Seattle or online at http://www.scoutstuff.org/. We encourage you to buy them from the Scout Shop. All necessary badges will be sewn on. All you have to do is add the red 550, that we provide to you!

Each scout needs a uniform shirt (buy large so it will last until 5th grade). Matching pants and belt are recommended but optional. The belt comes in handy when the scouts earn belt loop awards.

The pack provides a neckerchief and neckerchief slide for scouts that renew membership.

The Pack provides the pack number patches (the red "550" on the left shoulder), and the rank and achievement badges your scout earns. But you get to attach them!

The pack also provides the "class B" uniform: a Pack 550 t-shirt. When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, this shirt is an acceptable alternative to the normal "class A" uniform.
