Your Scout should be encouraged to wear their uniform appropriately. The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. They should understand the importance of representing the entire BSA organization and our Pack while in uniform.

Wearing the Uniform

Every Cub Scout should wear his or her uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, unless otherwise stated. The invites for the events will specify a Class A or Class B uniform. Please make sure your Scout is in the correct uniform for all events as this is part of our identity as Scouts.

The Class A Uniform - the "formal" Cub Scout shirt, neckerchief, slide, hat, shorts or pants and socks - is REQUIRED for all Pack and Den meetings, as well as other special events.

When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, the Pack may opt to have the Cub Scouts wear their Class B Uniform, consisting of the blue Pack activity shirt with the yellow Pack 673 insignia, uniform shorts or pants, belt, hat, and socks.

Pack or Den leaders will provide advance notice of any occasion when the boys should wear anything other than the complete uniform. Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask the Pack or Den leaders for guidance.

Here are some tips for wearing the uniform:

    • DO keep the uniform clean and in good repair. The official uniform is a sturdy, machine-washable garment that will last for years with proper care.

    • DO be sure to wear the complete uniform. A Cub Scout wearing a uniform with parts missing is not in uniform.

    • DO NOT wear non-BSA badges, awards, or insignia on the Cub Scout uniform or make any alterations to the uniform or insignia.

    • DO NOT mix uniform parts with non-uniform clothing, such as wearing a uniform cap with other clothing or wearing the uniform shirt with blue jeans. The uniform should be treated as a unit—worn in its entirety, or not at all.
