Lion Uniform


Your Scout should be encouraged to wear their uniform appropriately, although rules are more lax for the Lions! Please encourage your Lion to tucked in their shirt and help them to understand the importance of representing the entire BSA organization and our Pack while in uniform. However, it is more important for the Lion to be comfortable and have fun then to have their shirt tucked in, so don't sweat it!

Wearing the Uniform

In general, every Cub Scout should wear their Class A uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, including Pack and Den meetings, unit outings, and any activities done with members of the Pack or Den.

When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, a pack may opt to have the Cub Scouts wear their Class B Uniforms. This will be indicated in the event invite.

If you are unclear on the uniform requirements for an event, please ask your Den Leader.

Pack leaders will provide advance notice of any occasion when the youth should wear anything other than the complete uniform.

Here are some tips for wearing the uniform:

Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask the Den Leader for guidance.
