Cub Scout Uniform

We encourage all Cub Scouts to wear the official Cub Scout uniform available at retail locations selling Boy Scout supplies.

A list of local suppliers is attached here.

Uniforms and Handbooks

There’s not much you need to get your child started in Cub Scouts

Here is what you should start with:

·        A Cub Scout Neckerchief for the level appropriate for your child (see below)

·        A blue Cub Scout shirt (children in 4th or 5th grade may wear the khaki colored scout shirt - we suggest SHORT sleeves)

·        A numeral “1” for the shirt to show that you belong to Pack 1 and a Council Shoulder patch for Northern New Jersey Council

·        A neckerchief slide (unfortunately they have now created different slides for each level of Cub Scouting.  You can buy one for the appropriate level if you like, or use an old one or use a homemade slide of any kind.)

·        A Cub Scout Handbook

1st Grade – Tiger Cubs

Tiger Cub Handbook and orange neckerchief

2nd Grade – Wolf Cub Scout

3rd Grade  – Bear Cub Scout
