    What the well-dressed Cub Scout is wearing!
                             (or what parents need to know about Cub Scout Uniforms)


Uniforms are an important part of the Cub Scout experience. They show others that we are proud to be part of a worldwide organization that has helped develop boys into good leaders for many years.

In the USA, we see men and women in uniform in police departments, fire departments, and the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. Like these professionals, our wear of the uniform must be right at all times.

Here are a few tips for parents about what the well dressed Cub Scout wears. The hat, shirt, and neckerchief are the most visible aspect of the Cub Scout uniform. The distinctive blue color makes Cub Scouts stand out as someone special. The patches on the uniform identify the unit or group the boy belongs to as well as his personal accomplishments or achievements like rank awards and arrow points. These awards are sewn onto the shirt.
